    Fleeing educational ICT!

    Well, time to get out to preserve my sanity - emmigrating!

    If anyone wants it, there's a *very* challenging post avalible at my old place now, for those who are true gluttons for punishment :twisted:
    Edugeek's been a great resource, and a very welcome safety valve to boot - I'll try to read every now and again to keep up on things back in the Uk!

    The pay isn't good enough for the job as far as I can see!

    Shame you're off, would have been good to get you and some of the other edugeeks from the area together.

    Good luck

    Just hope that there is a training budget for the next person who takes over from you. They are investors in people you know! 8)

    A Python quote from Life of Brian comes to mind there.

    "You lucky lucky B*****d".

    Good on you mate. I think it's time ICT Managers / Technicians were payed what they are worth, which is a fair bit more than that.

    Average pay for an IT Manager is now £54K.

    I'd love to move to the USA, but fear the political climate over there. I may end up being imprisoned for being a leftie.
