Technician Development

working group

The Technician Commitment Working Group has been convened to advance activities in respect of technician development and recognition, under the University's commitment to action in the five areas identified by the Science Council as affecting technical staff. The group will:


  • Ensure that all technicians within the organisation are identifiable and that the contribution of technicians is visible within and beyond the institution.


  • Support technicians to gain recognition through professional registration.

Career development

  • Enable career progression opportunities for technicians through the provision of clear, documented career pathways.


  • Ensure the future sustainability of technical skills across the organisation and that technical expertise is fully utilised.

Evaluating impact

  • Regularly assess the impact of actions taken in support of the Commitment to ensure their effectiveness.
  • The Working Group will seek the views and feedback of technical staff as regards initiatives and activities under the Commitment and promote these amongst technical staff members.
