Use of school equipment for home jobs??

What is your schools policy on using fixed equipment in the workshop for home jobs? And, of course, borrowing portable equipment for use at home?


Not really a set policy but generally we can use fixed equipment for home use through asking the HOD. I've made wedding placeholders for a teacher using the laser cutter but all consumables were paid for by the teacher. I think if it was being used all the time for home use, it wouldn't be right but on occasion it's fair use, especially if the equipment hasn't been used in a while or the act of making something helps others learn on it.
