    ~1150 Kids, ~150 staff, ~500 devices - 1 x Network Manager (Full Time), 1 x Apprentice Tech (Full Time) and 1 x Classroom Tech (Term Time Only). We have a new Sixth Form opening in September and I've been told no more staff will be available until at least September 2015, even then that will be an apprentice role.

    We cope though, it's busy and very varied which what makes it enjoyable, but there are times we could do with a bit of quiet time.

    You really have been thrown in at the deep end! At least you have edugeek to keep you slightly sane Still there's no better way to learn than on the job.

    Not a school, but 2 people, supporting 67 PCs, 12 servers (mainly virtualised now) in 1 office, and 37 PCs in a separate office, plus maintaining a terminal server connection for everyone also.

    Hats off to you for sticking with it. Many would have packed that in. As mentioned, learning on the job is always best.

    Thanks for your reply. Would you mind if I ask what the project management is that you mentioned -is this IT support related?

    @DaveP mentioned Project Management - I'm guessing that it will be IT/Network related. Such as infrastructure upgrades, software roll outs and etc.

    I would say most IT Support staff do Project Management to a certain extent without even realising as you just do it automatically. Just upgrading PCs to SSDs from HDDs will require some PM. Specing the SSDs (size, speed), budget constraint, time management, no down time - not affecting teaching etc. You might not right a project plan / brief but you will have a good think about it. My work put me on PRINCE2 which was useful.

    When he is fulfilling his role as Project Manager it is not IT related at all. There is some history as to how this came about but it comes down to the fact that before he had his role in Network Support he was part of the Site Support Team. He was looking for a move and I felt that he would be useful in my team. This move was accepted provided he would be available to assist The Site Support Team from time-to-time. This commitment has grown into his current split role as Project Manager.

    HTH.
