Technicians that are responsible for the running of their technical service in schools and colleges need leadership and management knowledge and skills, to make sure their service to students and teachers is effective. The association of science education recognises these needs and has developed a leadership and management programme for science technicians in schools and colleges. Whether you’re a senior technician or team leader technicians, a lone technician or if your aspiring to the senior role this programme can support you in developing your leadership qualities and management skills to deliver an exceptional technical service to your school.
