The Technician Commitment

What is the Technician Commitment?

The Technician Commitment is a sector-wide initiative led by the Science Council and the Gatsby Foundation, aimed at addressing key challenges facing technical staff.

The Commitment aims to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians working in higher education and research, across all disciplines. Universities and research institutes are invited to become signatories of the Technician Commitment and develop an action plan to address the key challenges affecting their technical staff.

The University of Bradford is proud to be a signatory of the Technician Commitment and has produced a dedicated Action Plan with four target areas to safeguard the vital technical skills of our technicians and promote innovation and productivity within our technical workforce. The commitment will ensure greater visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for our technicians across all disciplines.
