Technician Development


The Science Council has written to the Vice Chancellor to commend the work done on our Technician Commitment Action Plan, led by Professor David Cardwell and Personal and Professional Development. 

Key points from the feedback include:

Together, these committees (the Technician Agenda Steering Group and the Technician Commitment Working Group) and a co-ordinator, provide strong leadership and send a strong message that both the Technician Agenda and the Technician Commitment is important for technicians and the organisation.


It is clear that the University of Cambridge have worked hard to implement this plan making some notable achievements such as establishing networking events, a technical conference and increased opportunities to increase visibility ... and recognition of staff, including encouraging submissions for national awards.


Technical career development and sustainability are often challenging to address and it is commendable to see that the action plan has a range of initiatives in this field.
