You're right, it is essentially the client's problem in that they need to resource support for their system. In reality, they can't even fill in a web form from their hosting provider to upgrade their service; it's a bit of a miracle that they can actually use the system I built them! With zero IT knowledge, they're 100% reliant on trusted providers to point them in the right direction and make sure they get an appropriate provider, at appropriate support levels, for an appropriate price. That's what they're (quite happily) paying me to do. I could just suggest they go direct to an agency, and it may indeed come to that.

As far as a trainee / apprentice / studentship goes, not sure that's a starter. Although it's a well-structured application, not sure too many recent graduates are looking to build up VB.Net WebForms experience right now...

Whoever we find, my final question is possibly the one that concerns me most; given the system is large but essentially static, what's the best way to get a new support provider up to speed quickly? I guess it's something that happens in IT shops all over the place where new developers take on responsibility for an application; it's just not something I've had to do for 20 years or so!
