    Re: What is your role?

    Wow ok, so my official title is IT Network Manager. I work for three (very different) primary schools with varying expectations.

    School 1: Maintaining the CC3 network (both high level interesting jobs and low level 'get your hands dirty' jobs), assisting the co-ord with future policy/strategy, SIMS, procurement of hardware/software/services, VLE manager, managing the schools assessment provision, use of IT for G&T and SEN kids. I have a lot of involvement with management here which is really good.

    School 2: Maintaining the peer-to-peer network that really needs to upgrading due to its size but can I get the money? can I hell! *urg*, assisting the co-ord with future policy/strategy, VLE manager, identifying and compiling quotes for hardware/software/services. Oh and talking the head of his latest whim or fancy (important job that!). Fair amount of involvement with management here.

    School 3: Manage the Win Sever domain and FIREFIGHT! Not a great deal of involvement with management here, the school just don't work that way.
