National award for ‘technician of the year’
Psychology technician Paige Metcalfe (pictured) has won this year’s joint BPS (British Psychological Society) and ATSiP (Association of Technical Staff in Psychology) award for technical support in psychological teaching.
Paige (whose pronouns are they/them) said: “I had no idea I’d been nominated for the award, so winning came as quite the surprise. I’m very grateful for the psychology staff and students for nominating me, they’re a wonderful bunch to work with. Furthermore, it’s lovely to see the efforts of technical staff celebrated with the wider university.”
Paige has worked at the University of Salford since 2019 and is described as a ‘considerate, knowledgeable, and reassuring presence’ in their nomination.
Dr Linda Dubrow-Marshall, Head of Psychology at the university said: “The psychology team appreciate our technicians so much, and it is brilliant to see them publicly acknowledged in this way.”
