Hi Edugeekers & Geekettes,
If you had £500 to spend before the powers that be take your "toy" budget away what would you buy? Unfortunately it just needs to be relevant to an IT technician job role.
Set of decent tools including hex keys, spanners, soldering iron and the like- Decent storage bag for said tools.
Corporate "IT Support" clothing with hoody or fleece

We have new tools en-route with a fancy carry case, network tester is already en-route but an air-compressor might be very useful indeed! Good work!
A new laptop
A new android tablet for, ahem, testing stuff
Software licences for useful stuff you don't have.
New toolkits, driver bits, a cordless screw driver, network testers etc.
Workwear, shoes overalls etc.
books for training.
Im not sure if you are serious or trolling you have unspent budget leftover.
Nope 100% serious about left over budget, we just brought ourselves new tablets and tools, we don't need work wear and training is already provided (along with any materials needed)
A decent backup solution. You can never have too good a backup!
You're not going to get much of a backup solution for £500
Some new furniture? Some nice monitors? A fancy shamncy keyboard and mouse?

If you ahve dual monitors how about a couple of ergoflex monitor arms? Would allow you to swing your monitors to any angle. Can be very useful.
I just got ordered a new MacBook Pro I felt like since all the teachers are getting shiny shiny I'd quite like one also. This was because we had left over budget too, god knows how the amount we have purchased!
