#85 Line Manager

Line Manager

Who should line manage a school librarian?

Well, probably not anyone from the administrative side of things, as they have little to do with curricular issues, information science or literacy. That includes ‘Business Managers’ of any description.

Head of English? I don’t think so. The librarian is there to support the whole school curriculum, not just the English Department.

The simple answer is that it should be a depute head or headteacher, who should have the skills and overview of school issues to be able to advise and guide you appropriately. In all my posts, I had a senior manager as my line manager, and would definitely not have settled for less.
