Following the success of #TECHOGNITION 2018 we will be running the event again this year from 4th - 8th March 2019. As well as this site, keep an eye on the Preproom.org Facebook page, Twitter feed and the Preproom.org monthly newsletter for more information.
#TECHOGNITION is a national celebration of School Science Technicians, recognising the importance of this essential role in science education.
In 2016, Preproom.org conducted a UK-wide survey covering many aspects of the school science technician role. One significant outcome of the survey was that the vast majority of the respondents felt school leaders and the government do not understand the role of school science technicians.
We feel that without recognition and a full understanding of the role by school leaders, the issues surrounding the poor pay and conditions that many technicians work under cannot be suitably addressed.
With this in mind, Preproom.org in conjunction with UNISON and Gratnells bring you #TECHOGNITION - a week-long event celebrating the work of school science technicians with the aim of publicly showcasing their vast knowledge and the variety of tasks that the job entails.
Prior to the event, you can order one of our FREE event packs (available from Monday 4th February). A limited number of packs will be available but you can still take part without one.
