New for 2016, The Salters’ Institute is pleased to announce that our National Awards for Science Technicians are in collaboration with both CLEAPSS and SSERC.
CLEAPSS is an advisory service providing support in science and technology for a consortium of local authorities and their schools, including technician support.
SSERC (Scottish Schools Education Research Centre) is a Local Authority shared-service providing support across all thirty-two Scottish Education Authorities.
These Awards, originally established in 2002 by The Salters’ Institute, are also supported by the following institutions:
The aim of the Awards is to highlight the importance of technicians in enabling high quality practical work in science in schools and colleges and, this year, the emphasis is on promoting and supporting the professional learning and upskilling of technician teams*.
*Don’t worry if you’re the sole technician in a school or college - you’re still eligible!
The Awards are to be given as team awards to Science Technician teams in schools and colleges catering for students up to age 18 across the UK. A team could consist of technicians in one school or college or a team of technicians working together in a technician network. A team could be working within or across the sciences. The awards will be made as follows:
We hope that the Awards will continue to heighten the awareness of the importance of Science Technicians to education in this country.
