Pay in schools???? Help and advise needed
Afternoon all, After a recent job evaluation throughout the Staffordshire Moorlands I have been wondering what other schools are doing about their websites i.e. do you build your own or go elsewhere, if so how much do you usually pay. If you build your own what is your job title, and most importantly is it in your job description?
I am employed as an IT Technician and get paid peanuts, my new job description says nothing about web design or even, like in some of the others, manage update and maintain. I have completely build the school website (flash page) with a CMS and continue to add features. Also am currently working on an area for the Primary Pyramid schools.
There is only one job description which gets close to what i do and that is 'Web Manager' which talks about
- Develop, manage and promote all of School’s/College’s internal and external websites.
- Design and implement the overall architecture of these websites.
- Create templates that staff will use to create content themselves; manage this content.
- Using server-side and client-side scripting, develop, update and manage online applications for the use of teachers, students, parents and the community.
Which i do all of these and more. The only problem with the job descripton is (even though it doesnt say about line management) it talks about working within a web team (but there are no other jobs descriptions for other members of the team).
I am at a loss and would appreciate you all letting me know what you school does web site wise and job title ... wise etc
(also a lil critique on the site would be great)(flash page)
Any help and advice would be appreciated
