Gah .. I'm in the same situ where I had (last year and only just got a Mac Mini server to help with it all) 25 iPad 1 thrust upon me by someone who thought it would be a good idea .. until I pointed out they could have waited a week or so and got iPad 2 instead ..

This isn't a regional restriction. Several other UK based techs have pointed this out in some of the other iPad discussions here.

Using a single master account you can synch all of your devices and apps. Yes it's a clear licensing violation, but until the VPP is available in your area, it's the simplest workaround.

...and it's also the official line on how to do it in this country (UK), direct from the mouths of the Apple Education/Business team at Meadowhall.

Excellent. I'll be attending our local Apple Learning Tour tomorrow morning and hope to elicit the same from them. Really, until they make the VPP available, what else are we to do?

It all depends on how you deploy the devices, how much user responsibility there is and what range of tools you are using to deploy / manage / assign the devices. I've put up the first 2 posts about the Leadership Summit here and here but it is going to take quite a few posts to go through everything which was discussed ... but some of the delegates are aware of a number of workarounds ranging from gifting to designated AppleIDs to some other things ... but the lack of VPP and present limitations was appreciated by all present. I am not sure whether it has come up in this or another thread but instructions for creating a non-credit card account can be found at Creating an iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store account without a credit card.

So Apple can't come knocking on the door about any licensing violations in the UK?

What about this ? Meraki Systems Manager
Looks like it might do what you want.

I agree, I attended the latest round of RM seminar and it gave some valuable information on how to licence the apps correctly without lots of individual email addresses, however it did confirm that there isn't a way to deploy the paid for apps legally without gifting them and then starting the install on each iPad manually, which is down to the schools preference of whether you want the staff, student or ICT support to carry out.
