    What an amusing layer of bureaucracy this could create if a school needs to re- employ technical people to diagnose and report breeches in (complex) SLA's to recover it's investment.

    Well everything rolled back and I have a working system ready for September, well apart from the new network points, which don’t work. 3 days and not managed to talk to the guy who did the system quote who is meant to be sorting out this mess and his boss is on holiday. Ringing up or leavening messages is a waste of time, he is always on the phone so cannot speak to me. Not much to do but wait for his boss to get back off holiday.

    Some people on this site look at the BSF in a cold clinical light and think that it will help the development of ICT for the Children and have no real concern of the affect it will have on ICT Managers and Senior IT support staff..... .. this is because they are in high curricular positions and are not affected by the BSF steamroller…

    But…. The bottom line is we Network Managers have to look to our future and under the BSF it isn't very good, in fact we are obsolete......

    Yes... Every Child Matters… but so do we, our life and our family's security.. if we can ‘t pay the mortgage, can’t support and feed our own kids because we are unemployed and over 35 and unemployable what then ?!?…..

    Do we sacrifice our careers like dumb martyrs and happily assist the BSF Consultants in taking our livelihood away?

    Yes all this Millions of Pounds being pumped into the schools ICT is fantastic.. but what good is it to us if we are on the dole?

    You hear of hundreds of IT Staff/Managers that are unemployable because they are in the upper 30's and beyond... plus all of our skills are in the Education Sector

    We have to put ourselves first.. and not walk ourselves out of a job...
