  • Maintain all A/V  equipment across the school and perform regular checks in all areas.
  • Review daily/weekly  jobs and any new jobs issued by the network manager.

The IT Technician will also work with the Network Manager as part of a team to improve the use of ICT throughout the school and to develop and implement investment in the IT network, software and hardware. This will require the IT Technician to:

  • Support teaching  staff / students in technical aspects of ICT, particularly providing      support during lessons
