Technical Champions is a New Standard in Supporting School and College Technical Staff

Welcome to Technical Champions

Technical Champions is a quality mark that awards secondary schools and FE colleges in the UK who fully support and recognise the importance of their technical workforce.

School and college technicians are an essential part of any successful school or college staff. Their roles are diverse and often complex, require a high level of expertise and knowledge, and yet technicians are often underutilised and their roles not fully understood.

Any secondary school or FE college in the UK is eligible to apply for the Technical Champions quality mark. Accreditation lasts three years and costs £325 per application.

Two levels are achievable - Schools and colleges who provide enough evidence against our award benchmarks will receive the Technical Champions - Standard Award and for those who go above and beyond in supporting and recognising their technical staff, the Technical Champions - Gold Standard can be achieved.

Successful applicants at either level will receive a certification pack, digital banners for web and print as well as detailed feedback and continued online support.
