The University of Leeds is the latest Higher Education Institution to become a Partner Affiliate of the National Technician Development Centre.
The University of Leeds is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK. Due to the impact of the coronavirus, they have not yet been presented in person with their Partner Affiliation certificate. Images and further statements will follow when the sector returns to normal working.
Sam Crossley (Organisational Learning Partner for Technician Commitment) and Jacqueline Goodall (Faculty of Biological Sciences Senior Technical Services Manager) have said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with the NTDC, which will help us identify new ways in which we can support the development of our Technicians Community and provide opportunities for them to network with other Technicians in the ever changing HE landscape”
Through our partnership with the NTDC we can help raise the visibility and recognition of the essential work and skills our Technicians provide nationally, contributing towards critical research. Building on the NTDC’s existing networks and relationships in the sector, we will be able to identify best practices for creating progressive and sustainable prospects for our Technicians, to empower and create new strategic capabilities.”
Terry Croft MBE, NTDC Founding Director, said:
“We are delighted that the University of Leeds have signed up as a partner affiliate and look forward to supporting them in delivering a sustainable future for their technical staff and services, particularly in these unprecedented times.”
