I'm in Sefton (Liverpool area) and on £12.5k for term time plus 10 days. My job title is ICT Technician but I'm the only full-time IT person in the school (excluding teaching staff) and I have full control over admin and curriculum networks (200+ workstations, 6 servers) but pretty much zero control over any of the IT budgets... does that make me a network manager? I have to look after the projectors too and I'm also supposed to be going on a PAT testing course later this month, which, as someone who isn't at all scientifically minded and doesn't have a clue with electrical stuff, I'm dreading
Wouldn't worry about it not a difficult course at all!
Did an internal course years ago at a college, three or four of us are getting trained again at my current place.
@lefthandandy have a look at Becta's tech competencies to see what level you are closest fit to. (a-d with c/d being net man)
Yeah ... sorry about the lack of link. Replying on my phone.
Thanks for the pointers guys, I'll have a look at that before term starts again next week!
i get £3266 london allowance, on 23K as an ICT Technician
actually not at the top, can go up to 25K which i think for ICT Technician is pretty good, the NM at my school is on 27,5K at the moment and can go up to 29K.
Network Manager pay should be £28K+, you can look on any IT job board and most positions mostly around London are earning this type of money, but the same job working commercially and not in a school environment should be £35K+ Schools pay very poorly ! Sickening !
On 18.5k here, same as my colleague. We are both senior network technicians that have a responsibility to manage and maintain the entire school network of 11 servers, 350 desktops, 300 laptops. The school claims that they have never had a "network manager" as such but yet we are expected to do a network managers job.
I agree with you about the NM pay, I feel that should be £30K+, 23K for Technician is not to bad considering the extras we have with the job: 6 weeks holiday + bank holidays + Christmas Holiday, free lunches, late start and early finishing over half terms (9-3:30).
On 16k in cumbria, as a technician. Have been for 2 years. Gets on my nerves seeing other people gettin wage increases for "saftey inspector" when they actually do jack all!
