We are committed to the continued development of an expert, accredited and agile technical team who are able to apply their skills and knowledge across traditional discipline boundaries.

Technical staff have access to professional development opportunities that include externally accredited teaching qualifications aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and the Science and Engineering Councils’ Professional Registers. Technical colleagues can also access bespoke training for the technical community through the Research England funded Midlands Innovation TALENT programme.

Technical staff also have access to the Technician Network which is a mechanism and network for technicians to share information, resources and expertise across the University. To contact the Network please contact Clare Templey (Technician Network Chair).
