I work as a specialist ICT teacher / coordinator / network manager in a Primary School in London, my experience goes back to BBC Bs, 380Z and Nimbus networks.
My typing is poor and I hate emoticons.
I work within three schools in Barnsley, South Yorkshire as Senior Network Engineer and do everything from fixing printers up to servers.
I work at:
Hunningley Primary School
The Barnsley Academy
Royston High School
One of my main projects at the moment is developing a Joomla site for Royston High School and this place seems to be the dogs danglies for support. I'm using the JoomlaGeek template at the minute on a testing WAMP server internal to the school and my aim is to develop everything internally, test and then finally move it onto the internet.
I'm sure i will get to know you all when i start to post on here!
If you want a laugh at the current websites my schools have click below:
Catch you all later,
All the best, Ben :)
Position: MIS Manager
Location: Swanwick Hall School, Derbyshire
Im new to the post and just coming to terms with the vast scope of the schools MIS system provided by Serco (CMIS 7 e_portal) so i will be spending most of my time in the MIS section of this forum looking for glimers of hope
Wave if you see me :)
Best of look with it all Mark. Are you new to education or moved on from another school?
hi to all the geeky types who also work in the farce known as the british education system
i work for a medium sized secondary in barrow-in-furness, cumbria (thorncliffe school)
i'm 26 and rapidly age-ing thanks to the job lol
we are currently in special measures (joy of joys) although the IT department and facilities were one of the few things to get a satisfactory scoring from ofsted
we have a total of 300 clients, pretty much all XP and 7 servers, all server 2003
my specialist area seems to be making hundreds of machines work on about £3.50, creating machines from nothing, rolling out complicated systems yesterday as no-one tells me whats going on and generally holding my head in my hands or banging it against walls, although lately i think i've made my way through the brick and found the re-inforced steel bunker lining behind
this summer i will have been here for 4 years
anyway, if i can be of help i will and i imagine most things i will find through searching
in whats left of my life by the time i leave here each day i like to play battlefield 2142 when i can (not too often), i tend to spend a lot of time on the owners club website for my car (SXOC) and i watch a lot of telly with the missus
so um, howdy and on to the next challenge/farce/chaos
im from an MIS background but new to CMIS & Education
Well, I thought it would be polite to introduce myself. I've used this website as reference since starting my job - but now I've took the next step, and I'm a member!
I'm John - a University Undergraduate on Industrial Placement. Aged 20.
Job Title: Website & Virtual Learning Environment Technician
School: The Mountbatten School, Romsey, Hampshire
Edit: I'm actually 21, not sure why I wrote 20 - not been 20 since November. Wishful thinking!
My name is Richard (bet you didn't guess that), I am a technician at a large school in Brighton, my primary area of responsability is Windows Servers, although as with everyone I am sure I am also asked to do many other things.
I have just come up to 3 years working in School IT, two at my current job one at my previous. Before that I spent 4 years at university studying for BSc Computer Science, while I was studying I did an industrial placement with HP... and that pretty much sums up my IT experence, unless you count the random part time technical support job I did while at university.
Oh... I have also played EVE Online for the past 3 years... seen a few EVE avatars on here, and 90% of the players are IT peeps it seems.[/edit]
Good evening all...
My name is John and I'm an ICT Technician at Hawkley Hall High School in Wigan, Lancashire. Been there for just over a year now.
I'm 21 (22 in 10 days), graduated from uni last year with my degree in Information Systems. During my degree I also worked part time for a major Utility company as an IT Engineer.
I'm liking the education sector thus far... It gives a real sense of being able to make a difference now that the use of IT has become so infuential in schools.

My name is Matt (no way!) and I'm 26. Currently working at Hanson School in Bradford as their Network Manager - been here for almost 4 years now. We're just in the process of a rather large network migration where we're moving from two seperate windows 2003/netware (sob) networks to a single windows 2003 mega network.
I've worked in education ICT support since leaving school at 18 - Dixons CTC (as it was then) employed me for a year as an ICT techie before I moved on to Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic College, had a 6 month stint at Provident Financial in an attempt to see how things worked in the private sector, went back to Yorkshire Martyrs for a couple of years after being headhunted and now I'm at Hanson.
In terms of certifcation, Im A+ and N+, keep looking at the MCSE but now MS have said its on its way out I don't know whether to bother going down that track or waiting for the new one to come about.
Skillsets, like I'm sure is the same with most of you - know bits about lots and lots about bits. I look forward to being able to get help on things I get stuck with as well as hopefully lending a hand to people who are stuck with problems I've come across before/know something about.
Didn't know this place existed until the reg story was posted up re sophos, glad I've found it.
Good to see that something positive has come out of the kerfuffle! :-)Quote:
