BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT is delighted to support the Gatsby Foundation and Science Council as they champion the technicians within higher education and research.

BCS is playing a leading role in the movement to recognise, support and celebrate technicians working in digital roles across all sectors. It stands with those working across the entire range of science, technology and engineering technician communities, and is backed by our RITTech standards.

Jeremy Barlow, Director of Standards at BCS says: “Higher education and research only functions because of the community of talented professional technicians that we’re recognising today. We believe that across all sectors we need to make visible the vital role digital technicians play, and highlight that this is a rewarding career to choose.

Along with our partners we believe that it’s essential that technicians are visible, and are given the development they deserve and need. It’s fantastic to see so many powerful organisations and individuals getting behind this, and we’re proud to stand with them.”
