Technicians Make it Happen

IST Supports the ‘Technicians Make it Happen’ Campaign

Technicians are the linchpins of the UK economy and they will be integral to overcoming some of the great challenges of the coming years and decades.

A new campaign called ‘Technicians Make It Happen’ which aims to raise awareness of the role of technicians and technical careers, has been launched by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. Gatsby believe that by highlighting the contribution technicians make to the UK economy, technical careers will be more highly valued and better understood by society as a whole.
