    Hi and welcome
    I take it you hit the first post no url block?
    It has prevented so much spam from autobots.

    Hi

    been on here a few days now but only just found this thread...

    I'm Glyn - Senior ICT Technician at a Secondary school in South Derbyshire where I've been for the last 6+ years. We have a Network Manager and one other Technician, 2 ICT Teachers plus one TA - although things are changing next term with retirements and moves...

    We have about 300 PC's / Laptops plus maybe another 70+ Staff Laptops. We have 5 main ICT Rooms plus other areas like Technology who have 'mini' Suites.

    We have just installed Ranger for Networks (Replacing CSE) to control Network Security Apps etc.

    I'm also the Website and Learning Platform Administrator - We use RM's Kaleidos LP - like most schools in Derbyshire are/will be using.

    Before being in School I was in the RAF for 12 years as a Radar Tech - moved in to IT and then on leaving the RAF went contacting for about 6 years (until Blair put my Co out of business)
    I worked mostly for big multi-national corporations - EDS, Rolls-Royce, British Aerospace etc so have come across a wide range of working practices - some good - some not so

    I was signed on for 22 but then the redundancies came around so I got out - I came out and went contracting - 1st one was at DERA, 3rd one was at BAE, the 5th at Rolls-Royce Aero and the 7th at Astrium - All Defence related companies so you could say that I couldn't keep away

    Thanks for the welcome Cheers

    Welcome - and out of pure interest - how come you've left military consulting to work in a school????

    I'd much rather leave the school and go do some military consulting!

    No - I mean Blair - after the RAF I set-up my own Company to go Contracting - all was well until Blair got in then he introduced the dreaded IR35 - Stealth Tax and started flooding the market with cheap labour - the bottom just dropped out of the market, rates dropped and you just couldn't afford to work for the money being offered... so company closed and here I am in a school

    @ Butuz - I wasn't consulting - I was in the RAF - served 12 years... I got out because at the time there was no IT Trade - we were all Electronics Trades - If I'd stayed in I could have been posted back on to a Radar site and I'd have lost all my IT Skills so I took redundancy.
