Technicians Make it Happen is geared towards inspiring young people and explaining to the adults in their lives, such as parents and teachers, that the career of a technician can have boundless opportunities. Our aim is to reveal how technicians work in virtually every sector and industry in the country – and if you are naturally analytical, practical and a real problem-solver, it’s very likely that a technician career could be ideal.
We want to shine a light on some of the most interesting and diverse careers that many of us never get to hear about. These jobs are in high demand, usually well-paid and can often be found in the most cutting-edge and innovative industries.
The campaign is driven by the Gatsby Foundation’s Education Team. Gatsby has long championed technical education and skills in this country. We recognise that not only are these technician roles vital to our economy and growth, they offer a career pathway with autonomy, practicality and plenty of opportunity for growth - making it an ideal choice for young people want a technical education route.
