Started working in schools supporting a single secondary. Moved to private sector supporting more than 100 schools, primary and secondary, special needs and PRUs [telephone and on-site support visits] for an LEA in a team of 4 technicians then moved back to supporting a single secondary school [1200 students and more than 120 staff]
I run a small tech support business, look after 9 primaries, 2 infants, 1 special and numerous businesses.
Work in a secondary school; soon to be secondary school and sixth form. So 11-18 for me. 1350 pupils and 150 staff.
School for 14 to 18 years even though its call a college.
New job for me and I am loving it, beats private sector anyday.
Apart from the money :-(
I picked other as we are a not funded by LEA but charity, special school for Speech and language and the age range of our pupils is 10yrs to 18 yrs
I'm self employed as a consultant to a local tech support firm.
Background mainly in corporate IT but have experience in IT retail.
Just a small independent team of 3 guys supporting about a dozen schools mostly private, various businesses and a Football Club.
HE for me
Independent secondary with lower and upper sixth forms.
I'm in the "other" camp. Work at an e-Learning centre providing support for the consultants here. Started here as a contractor a few months ago, and loved it. When they advertised for the permanent role, I jumped at it.
All my previous experience has been in the private sector, and I have been contracting since 1995. Prior to that I was in banking starting as a computer operator on Burroughs (Unisys) mainframes in 1974 and ended up as a change control co-ordinator.
As an aside, when I informed my careers master that I had got a job in computing, he told me I was stupid as there was no future in computing. He strongly advised me to take up a position he had secured for me as an apprentice armature winder . Advice I am grateful to have ignored, I have to say.
Secondary Education, primarily in AV support, though experience is in broadcast & medical IT.
ICT is a managed service, (RM), but standalones are increasing yearly... .
Also support 6 primaries & a special needs school.
