Welcome to #TECHOGNITION

#TECHOGNITION is a national celebration of technical support staff, recognising the importance of their essential roles in school and FE college education.

Over the last decade there have been several national surveys which have had one significant outcome - that school leaders, the government and the wider public do not fully understand the role of technical staff in schools and do not recognise their important contribution to education.

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 bring you the fourth annual #TECHOGNITION event in 2021.

OUR EVENT PLANNED FOR THE 5TH MARCH 2021 HAS
BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL THE SUMMER TERM 2021 DUE TO COVID-RELATED NATIONAL SCHOOL CLOSURES.

A NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE END OF THIS
SPRING TERM.

This one-day event celebrates the work of school and FE college technicians with the aim of publicly showcasing their vast range of skills and the variety of tasks that these jobs entail.

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 (the upload form will appear on the day of the event) and to social media alongside the hashtag #TECHOGNITION

We will be giving away some great prizes throughout the event for some of those taking part.

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 this essential role.
