    Their remuneration compard to most tech support staff makes up for the "inconvenience" in my opinion.

    Not really on subject but it is interesting that RM gets a hell of a slamming on this thread, yet they seem to be ahead when it comes to winning contracts under BSF. I suppose allot of the LEAs who are partly responsible for awarding contracts are going to have egg on their faces when the sh*t hits the fan. I do not think we will have to wait long for this to happen?

    When the Educational commitees involve all areas of expertise instead of just ex Headteachers and ministers who turn themselves into these political teams of quangoes (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/1058349.stm) who quite frankly do not live in the real world enviroment then maybe just maybe a balanced enviroment within education would prevail.

    There's a surprising lack of flame in response to that comment

    Re: Unhappy teachers on the TES forum

    I know :cry: I had to stop myself posting on TES a while ago because the teachers didn't like what I had to say. All they have to do is stamp their feet, run to their union and they get what they want (usually). What annoyed me about TES was that they didn't think a Technical Support Staff section was necessary.

    Re: Unhappy teachers on the TES forum

    Spent ages last year setting this up and testing. (Have to say RM support were good with any problems, and there were a few!!! )

    Teaching staff then decided not to use it as they were too busy to fit it in.

    Will take my time this year!!!!

    Huh? I thought the testing was required and enforced from 'on high'?

    It isn't ... the area is not just for ICT teachers ... but any member of staff that deals with, or uses, ICT in a school ... or at least that is how it used to be, but now it is ICT as a subject!!!

    Anyway ... there are better places to go than there ...

    Re: Unhappy teachers on the TES forum

    I see technical support more of a whole-school thing, not directly linked to ICT as a subject.
