#TECHOGNITION celebrates and showcases the essential work of school and college technicians in the UK.

Taking part in the event helps school leaders and the wider public understand how important technicians are to student success and the beneficial influence they have on technical careers.

We hope you will join us for our seventh annual #TECHOGNITION event on Friday 8th March 2024.

During the event we encourage technical staff in UK schools and colleges to upload photos of themselves or their colleagues performing any one of the vast and varied jobs they do to this website and to social media alongside the hashtag #TECHOGNITION. Click here to view the 2023 event gallery.

We will be giving away some great prizes during the 2024 event for some of those taking part. Click here to see the 2023 prize draw winners.

Technicians are highly skilled, very experienced and essential members of school and FE college staff whose value is often not fully appreciated. Together we can raise the profile of these essential roles and celebrate these unsung heroes of education.
