    Is this the beginning of the end for the Science Technician role?

    I read through all the vacancies (non-teaching) at this college. Have you seen the registered nurse salary?, (1 long day, 1 short day and an over night shift 30.5 hours.)

    Glassware and general labware-

    I'm used to a pre-covid situation (9 + Years as a Senior Sci Tech used to) where each lab has enough general labware and teachers mostly ensure glassware is cleaned where possible by the students or placed in a separate container to be cleaned and other equipment is put back in its place...

    Hello, Does anyone know of where I could source an A4 planner? I collate my requisitions and use an A4 lined exercise book (which I line myself and split 6 periods over a double page spread). Teachers' planners are mostly a day to a page so there's not quite enough space for details.
