Our commitment to our technicians - find out more

(27 September 2019)

The work of our technicians, right across the University, is very important to our ongoing success. Last year we signed the Technician Commitment, a sector-wide initiative to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technical staff.

Since then, a Steering Group has been working to develop and implement the Commitment, including conducting a survey of technical staff and developing an Action Plan.

We’re pleased to announce the launch of dedicated web pages where you can find out more about this work. Please visit:

In addition, we’re holding a launch event at the Calman Learning Centre on Wednesday, 20 November. This will be a celebration of the work of technical research and teaching support staff, bringing together the technical community across the University. All technical staff are welcome, and will be contacted directly with more details.
