A working party was formed in 2010 at the National Forum on the Role and Support Structures for School Laboratory Technicians in Australian Secondary Schools. Funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, the working party was charged with creating a national standard for laboratory technicians by 2015.
The standards aim to set a minimum expectation for the training and practice of Science support staff in schools across their professional knowledge, professional practice and professional attributes.
ASET is committed to keeping our members informed of progress to date.
