    Re: Job evaluation

    Schools still like to include technician in their job titles because in schools technician means low pay and very few will pay above scale 5 as that's a silly amount of money for just a technician. [sarcasm] Isn't it??? [/sarcasm]

    Skills don’t seem to be factored into it because that word hangs there and you can’t have someone with that title being paid the same amount as a teachers starting pay.

    I often wear an id badge with my name & job title (Network Manager), when called 'technician' I have been known to look around & say sorry, I cannot see any technicians You get puzzled looks from the kids if you do that!

    Re: Job evaluation

    Yep i've had that on occasion. I've even had the odd new member of staff come in and leave scanning for me to do and one request for "40 copies of this CD for tomorrow". Needless to say it didn't happen and they left with instructions of where to buy CD's and to use their department CD burner.

    It's the mentality some staff have worked in education for a long time and are used to support staff being there to do what ever is asked. They don't seem to understand that some of use are as qualified as they are and similar in 'rank' in the school. Once they get the idea that a school doesn't hire a network manager to scan pictures you get more respect.
