Being a member of the Technicians Network for 2017/2018 includes access to our ever popular Network Meetings for up to two technicians from your school and a reduced price at the Technicians Conference on 22 June 2018.  Members will also have the opportunity to contact our Network Leader for help and advice in their role while also being part of a connected local network of technicians.

Following the retirement of Sue Cure, we are pleased to announce that we have a new lead for the Network of Angela Grantham from Sir Christopher Hatton Academy. Angela will be supported in this role by George Johnston and Uttambhai Mistry.

Sessions running this year will be:

  • Wednesday 6 December 2017, 2.5 hour session (choice of morning or afternoon available with lunch included). 
    As well as the usual updates, this meeting will have two workshops, one focusing on working with radiation, with the opportunity to make and take your own Cloud Chamber for your school, and the second from Data Harvest on using data-logging in the required practicals for GCSE and A Level.

  • Thursday 15 March 2018, 2.5 hour session (choice of morning or afternoon available with lunch included)
    This meeting will aim to focus on current issues around the storage of chemicals in the prep room.  
  • Friday 22 June 2018, All-Day
    Members will also be able to attend the Technicians Conference run by Education CPD+ at a 'Members Discount'.  Our Technicians Conference last year received excellent feedback, with delegates particularly enjoying the breadth of choice of workshops. The price for the day includes lunch and refreshments.
