Working in Partnership

The Working in Partnership Technician Commitment Forum was created by Linda Robinson, Organisational Development Lead and Mel Leitch, Technical Manager, in September 2018.
The forum recognises that Technicians as a group often have limited reach within Universities to implement change however by working in partnership with Organisation / colleague developers, they can be much more effective in implementing the changes needed to support the Technician Commitment.

We aim to hold two meetings per year (February and September) in Newcastle to explore elements of the Technician Commitment and to share best practice. Initially the forum was aimed at northern universities with each sending an organisational development lead and a technical lead. We are delighted that representatives now come from further afield including Scotland and Northern Ireland. The value of attending these meetings is to engage and share best practice.
