Technician Commitment

Manchester Metropolitan University is a signatory of the Technician Commitment. The commitment is a national initiative led by the Science Council and supported by the Gatsby Foundation, which will ensure the visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability of technical skills for Technicians across all disciplines working in higher education and research.  

With over 30 schools and departments, Manchester Metropolitan provides a wide-range of high quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses that combine academic, technical and professional expertise.

The University recognises that every member of staff can make a difference to the quality of our teaching, the success of our students and the impact of our research, and that the talents and expertise of our 250 Technicians at Manchester Metropolitan are at the heart of these activities.

Our 24-month Technician Commitment action plan details how the University will continue to recognise, develop and support its technical staff, ensuring a positive and impactful difference for Technicians, their skills and the future of the sector.
