Similar in content to David's earlier post, I am also looking for work, albeit
down the line a bit. My wife has been given a conditional offer to study at
Plymouth University which means that I will need to move to support her and
my 2 year old daughter. She has deferred to September 2006 which gives us
time to find a place to live and for me to get a job. In my schools to date
I have had quite a fight getting Linux in but have managed with varying
levels of success so I would ideally like a school that has a tacit
commitment to open source if anyone knows of such a position likely to come
up. At my current school I have set-up quite a successful web business in
order to deliver AVCE/Applied GCE so would want more 6th form than anything
else, but I know beggers can't be choosers. I have used Mambo and eGroupWare
on the sites so far for local primary schools so am reasonably okay with this
technology. Not quite to TA's level, but I get by.
In conjunction with this, my school is looking for a network technician. They
run a Novell network and we are making moves to migrate to Linux desktops in
a year or so depending on Novell's commitment to this. There is a bit of
money coming in so I suspect the salary could be negotiated to the high 20K
range. Not a great deal for guhru's, but a good start for someone and a good
environment to test and apply open source.
The school is near Bath in a town called Writhlington.
De omnibus dubitandum
