The Technician Commitment is led by the Science Council to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians working in higher education and research.
In May 2017 the University became one of the founding signatories for this Commitment.
Universities and research institutes are invited to become signatories of the Technician Commitment and pledge action against the key challenges affecting their technical staff.
We are proud to be working towards the requirements of the Technician Commitment, as outlined in our institutional action plan.
Technician Commitment action plan
The Technician Commitment is a collaborative endeavour and the Steering Group will support and facilitate the establishment and sharing of best practice demonstrated in the self-assessments and action plans.
