The NTDC Technician Survey

The NTDC Technician Survey captures information on every aspect of a technical workforce, from specialist technical skills, to future career plans and development needs. Each institution receives a bespoke version of the survey, specifically tailored to support and enable your strategic workforce planning, and help you utilise the skills of your technical workforce.

Why Do The Survey?

For individual technicians, the survey is a chance to carry out reflective CPD and make their institution aware of their skills and development needs.

For institutions, the survey identification of upcoming technical skills gaps, unused technical expertise and areas of support and development that their technical workforce may benefit from. 

Institutional and individual engagement with the survey raises the visibility and recognition of technicians by supporting career development, enabling the strategic and operational planning for a sustainable technical workforce.

What Does the Survey Capture?

At the core of the survey is a Technical Skills Database, containing over 3,000 unique technical characteristics. This, along with the NTDC Survey Team’s specialist experience, allows us to guide each institution through the whole process, which includes:

  • Tailoring the survey to your institution
  • Assisting with your communication and engagement strategy
  • Running the survey on your behalf
  • Providing access to the data and follow-up actions

Ongoing support is provided by our team from start to finish.
