    Re: How much do you earn and in what post?

    I started here with 80 PC's and just the Curriculum Network to look after, under a teacher manager. Now I have Admin and technology networks too, I am no longer managed, and I look after upwards of 250 machines.
    Why we're discussing this all the time is that changes are afoot to match the increase in demand - we need to know where we are coming from to secure the best positions for ourselves and the schools we work in.

    That's part of the schools problem, as has been said - good staff/ staff who don't feel charitable towards schools, leave.

    its when u've had a job like this for a long time as I have, you wake up one day and realise you've become a network admin instead of a technician and by then its too late. if only that county regrading would hurry up. i cant loose lol.

    Re: How much do you earn and in what post?

    Well I hate to say it guys but with no career structure, no sensible pay increases and with no proper formal training offered it is career suicide to stay.

    I am fairly ambitious (as I am sure most of you on here are), so it seems the only course of action is to move on. That means we will have lost 3 technicians in just over 14 months.

    Shocking.

    Is there anything we can do as a group to bring this to the attention of government etc?

    Or do you all think it is a lost cause?

    If we take after classroom assistants and call ourselves 'Whole school assistants' would that help?

    Just under 45k (Yorkshire)

    ~50 Computers, 12 (servers on site) 22 Servers (Datacentre)

    I left the education / public sector :-P

    Best bit is the people though, alot less whining / politics / toys out of pram throwing / retards / being treated like shit.

    Re: How much do you earn and in what post?

    Term-time ICT Technician working with bossman, North East (Durham County Council). 11-16 school with ~720 sutdents. Was on £8,894 when I started at age 16 in 2003; now £11,887.

    A trainee technician post was recently open at the LEA for more than what I'm getting now, so I reckon the loswest they can get away with is probably right...

    Re: How much do you earn and in what post?

    Reading all this makes me want to cry, scream or bite someone

    Down here in Dorset, in the first/primary/middle school world, I earn about 13.5k (pro-rata'd). I am alone, granted neither school is that big (one has 70pcs, 32 wireless laptops, 16 whiteboards and teacher's laptops, the other has 35 pcs, 15 whiteboards, 16 teachers laptops) but I am completely responsiible for the whole thing and have recently spec'd up a whole IT suite for each school with no input at all from anyone. I do everything around here in a very few hours a week (8 at one - the bigger one - and 10 at the other).
    The salaries for tech staff at this level are appalling - a friend of mine works in an admin capacity for Bournemouth Borough Council - a job that requires no qualifications and only a modicum of common sense - and she earns much more than I do.
    There is no money in the budget of the first and middle schools for any sort of IT equipment, never mind support, so the salaries are as low as possible. Techs in the senior schools earn more, but nothing like some of you do.
    I have been thinking about doing some more study, but to be honest you think 'what's the point' when you know that your salary will not change much whatever you do.
