Not sure if this posting is allowed, or even in the right part of the Forum, but my School is looking to employ an IT consultant to review the IT provision.
The IT is utter ***** at my school, with a Windows obsessed, anti-Open Source IT guy in charge who runs TFT screens at the wrong resolution, hasn't even introduced proper email, has failed to introduce a VLE, and whose master password is a plain dictionary word (I hacked it... sorry!).
We have software that doesn't work, IT not supported, a proxy server that doesn't work properly with Firefox and best of all a web based MIS that isn't actually accessible on the Internet.... The list goes on and on.
Finally, the Head is looking at getting in consultants to have a look, but I worry that some consultants are as bad as our head of IT! Maybe I'm wrong, but if anyone out there knows a good IT consultant, prepared to 'inspect' and report on a large College in SE England could you let me know. I can't guarantee I'll get you the job, but I'll put you forward.
