Shirt, Tie, Trousers, Shoes
Just a quick question regarding what you are required to wear to work on a normal working day. Is Jeans/T Shirts, smart casual or fully suited and booted?!
Shirt, Tie, Trousers, Shoes
Network Manager at an Academy and i'm suited and booted minus the jacket. Have got some scruffs under the desk for when I need to get down and dirty though.
It very much depends on your school's dress code. Some have a school polo shirt combo for the techs, some have "office smart", some have "office casual" codes.
It has always been office casual for us. Suits and ties not required for support staff, but jeans banned. However, if I am doing grotty work or it is the holidays then jeans are allowed.
I wear as little as I can legally get away with while staying within the schools guidelines of taste and decency, it's a tightrope I walk everyday...
Full suit and tie for me, combats and polo shirt for my technician.
Ours code is office smart, but we have an exception for ties everyday under health and safety. We also have an exception for jeans and tshirt during the holidays or if we are undertaking dirty works.
The first school I worked at I had to wear a suit, but since the second school I've worn smart trousers, polo shirt, and safety boots (personal preference)... no rules in the holidays, so just jeans, polo shirt & trainers...
Always black trousers and a black polo shirt - saves thinking about what to wear!!
I tend to wear the same polo shirts out of work too (I've got better things to spend my money on than clothes lol)...
Branded polo shirt and combats for NM and us Techies.
Shirt, tie, trousers, shoes/boots here....sometimes even a suit, but that depends on who I'm meeting with.
I also have a set of scruffs in the car for when it's time to get dirty.
For the rest of the team it's shirt and trousers, tie optional......although I may implement a department polo shirt and trousers dress code if I can get the go-ahead.
Trousers and polo shirts (school logo'd) for techs & me (although I think some would prefer me in a suit). Holidays is Hawaiian shirt and shorts. Even in winter.
Cargo trousers and polo shirt for all the IT staff. We're suitably dressed for the job we do (we're all hands-on). I will happily strangle anyone with a tie if they suggest I wear one.
I wear generic polo-shirt that isn't branded, trousers and shoes. This is within the school dress code that defines what you should wear if nothing is specified in your contract.
I have been told, on occasion, that I 'should' be wearing a shirt and tie but this has been so far resisted. Some staff of course wander around in whatever they can feel like and never seam to be challenged.
