Hi Sean :tea:
I'm from Ystrad Mynach.
After 5,547 posts I have not formally introduced myself. I am Zak a technician for a technology college in Rochdale. Hi everybody
Welcome Zak! :tea:
I am sure you will be most helpful member of the community :)
My name is Zdenka and I'm a part-time technician at a Primary school. I am also in the middle of my Bsc Computer networks degree, as well as running a busy house - 3 children, lol :scared:
I am also a woman, which doesn't seem to be the norm - just got my e-mail for the embc training in Loughborough entitled Dear Sir - hope they'll let me in!!!
I started in September and got basically just thrown in, so it's very much on the job learning - if I don't find a solution, tough! Well, not strictly speaking true, we do have some lovely guys at Matlock helping us out.
I actually love this although it's a bit mad :D It's great to go to the infant site and get questions like Whats your name, What are you doing to our computers and Can you do up my buttons, I can't do buttons.
Anyone in Derbyshire? See you at the embc conference!
Welcome Zdenka, not in Derbyshire, but in Leics so will be at the EMBC conf :)
Hi Zdenka, if you ever move on to a Secondary school, you'll find the questions are more or less the same.
But it's the staff that need they're buttons done up.
Hi, I'm Daniel, was previously an ICT teacher (I know, boo hiss, clearly knows nothing) but decided teaching wasn't for me and I'd quite like to move into IT support. Have lurked here for a while, but thought I should finally say hi!
Am currently looking at and applying for jobs all over, always on the lookout for school IT jobs but other than the forum on here there doesn't seem to be a central place to find available jobs, and since I'm looking all over (will move to wherever the job is) it's not simply a matter of looking at the local authority website for the area. Oh well, c'est la vie!
Ah a convert from the Dark Side :p
Welcome Daniel, I think its good to have people with teaching experience to offer their opinions on things
