Technicians Make it Happen

The Technicians Make it Happen (TMiH) campaign aims to raise the profile of technicians through the promotion of case studies, presence at events attended by young people and their parents, and targeted social media content.

Since its launch at London's Mall Galleries in June 2016, TMiH has shown an encouraging increase in general awareness of technicians, and a steady understanding that these are good roles for young people.

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.

As set out above, TMiH has three distinct audiences:

  • Pre-GCSE students/Post-GCSE Students;
  • Parents/Guardians/Carers; and
  • Teachers/Careers Advisors

Content, whether via events, social media, or on the main campaign website, is tailored to these audiences accordingly.

Real-life stories of technicians, or people who have followed technical education and career pathways, provide the inspiration for much of the campaign’s materials and outputs.
