UCL employs approximately 1000 highly skilled technical staff with a diverse range of expertise essential to delivering the university’s research, education and knowledge transfer mission.

To recognise the contribution made by this group of staff, the university has joined a sector wide campaign led by a steering group of sector bodies, with support from the Science Council and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Technicians Make It Happen campaign, called the Technician Commitment, which aims to ensure visibility, training and career development for technicians working in all disciplines. This national group has identified a need for greater coordination and collective action across the sector to improve the status and profile of technicians and to ensure sustainability of the technical workforce in academia and research.

To find out more about what the University has done and is planning to do under these themes, please take a look at our 24-month action plan.
