    Wow ... some old timers are popping up ...

    I bet that when you were young even the mirrors were in black and white ;-)

    Welcome one and all ... add your pic to the edugeek map and register for the conference (since we have been kind enough to make this one close to you) and we look forward to seeing you there.

    Surprised to see the number of younglings going straight into the world of work.

    Whatever happened to the time honoured rite of three years spent slacking at the tax payers expense. Oh yeah tuition fees :cry:

    I know that many people complain about the relavance of what is taught on many uni comp sci courses but there is something to be said for the broader context they give.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    i have arguments for and against uni courses

    as was said to at queue at bett...

    "The mature students always had work in on time and had no problems with"...

    to be honest i think lot people are not mature enough to handle uni when they leave school.....

    one reasons they should be more ways for mature students to be able to do uni course later on in life.....

    At the end of the three years, where would the real-life hands-on work experience (that a lot of employers want) come from? If, at 16, I did the 2 years A level and follow the uni route, I'd be at Uni now. In a few years time I believe it would be incredibly difficult to find a job that I wanted. As I came straight into work, I can kill two birds with one stone. Work experience, plus part-time courses, certification, training etc. Works for me

    And of course the joys of student loans!

    Thanks to an earlier aborted course I did, by the time I finish my course - in June, Yay!! - I shall owe his Tonyness and friends (a.k.a Student Loans Company) nearly 20k!!

    That's gonna take a while to clear on an entry-level tech's wages

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi I have just recently fond this website and I am so glad tha there is a place for all of us ICT people.

    I work in Plymouth, and find the job very demanding with not much thanks for my effort, although I do enjoy it.

    Well I hope I can share some of my experiences and maybe help someone else in the process.

    Hi, I'm Chris, and I'm an alcoholic...........

    I'm a Systems Technician at the Grange School in Dorset.

    Well, i revently found this website from a link on the SWGfl portal.
    So, over the last couple of weeks, Its great tp find people who can simpathise with the situations of everyday support staff/ict life.

    As a bit of a back story, I used to go to this school, did sixth form here, ended up with a computing A level, and was offered a job.

    Chris
