    Re: Who is your line manager?

    Sorry to drag this post up, but i just wanted to add my 2 pence.

    I am the NM at my present school it seems the ICT Co-ordinator is my line manager. It is a complete pain in the arse. She is good at securing funds (after i have composed a deatiled plan of what need to be purchased for the next year) but i feel she interefers unneccessarily on a day to day basis.
    I tried to enforce the 'No eating' whilst using PC's only for her to overule me by suggesting that this idea was completly out of touch with the current 'lunch time club' style bookings.

    I have been in this school for two years and was horrified to find i would be managed by the ICT Co-ordinator . I spoke to the Bursar here shortly after my appointment, but there argument was that no-one in SMT had any technical expertise in the ICT field.

    Well my direct line manager is the head of ICT but he doesn't interfere with the day to day running of the department I just hand him my plans and he smiles at the cost I then have discussions with the bursar, and governors to approve funding so really my line manager lets me do my job

    To be honest I'd change the Service level agreement or create one stating no support to computers damaged through misuse in regards to eating or drinking near them take it directly to the head and make sure he understands why. Or better still talk with the head and get any SMT to be in charge of you seeing as your ICT Co-Ordinator doesn't really know jack about the network just how to use ICT in the curriculum.

    NM - Deputy Head, it use to been Head of ICT but the new one is also my partner so they thought it might be a bit of cheating when it came to the yearly review

    Lol good grief you guys must own the ICT there lol!

    I have to admit I've been lucky here I tend to get whats needed and they'll listen to my arguments this year is quite a big spend as I want to do several things all at once I am however putting off the wireless as the N standard is coming out next year (If ratified) and I want to wait for the 600mb/s proposed speeds

    Nominally the head of ICT - but recently she has been told that she is no longer responsible for IT across the curriculum (goodness knows who is) and so quite how I can sort out all the IT stuff in the school whilst being responsible to someone who has nothing to do with it is beyond me!
