So, if anyone feels free to pass on any of their wisdom, please do, but here is my current situation: - I am now a lone technician (untrained), and the person who is going to help me starts last week (although I've heard this as a rumor) of term and it seems this person is on the same 'level' as me - They will not train me up as a senior science technician as I am going into teacher training, yet as someone untrained, I feel uncomfortable. - The main reason I went to be a science technician was to improve my practical knowledge to then help me get into teaching. I don't even have the time to test practicals as there is too much work for me here (and I REFUSE) to work in my breaks etc. - I am with an agency and come April, my pay will drop. I travel to Watford from London and this drop will not be financially stable. - I need to get an idea of wages for technicians/new senior techs, as I am unsure where to negotiate. I am thinking of using this to negotiate something and get it in writing will I am the only technician here. Thoughts?
