Education technician apprenticeship

Provide skilled technical support in teaching, learning and research environments

The education technician apprenticeship covers two related occupations, a higher education assistant technician working at universities in subjects such as applied science, engineering, arts and humanities; or a simulation-based education technician, employed within NHS Trusts, education institutes or in private facilities.

Typically based in either an academic setting or clinical environment, you’ll be responsible for maintaining and managing equipment, supporting academics and professionals and preparing the teaching and research environment. You may also be required to take training sessions using simulated learning. Other job titles could include clinical simulation technician or clinical skills technician.
