Yvonne Brailsford, Post 16 Science Technician

My role is to provide technical and practical support and advice to the pupils and staff who teach A`Level Chemistry, Biology and Physics at Post 16. This involves preparing the practicals used to explain many scientific principles to help cement many scientific concepts. I also support the students with any scientific problems they may have in the absence of their member of staff.
I joined the Post 16 Centre in June 2013 from the role as Science Team Leader at a large Science College in Sheffield where I was nominated and won the national Science Technician award for 2014. I have worked in the role of Senior Technician since 1996 after spending 17 years as an Analytical Chemist and Mineralologist for a local company.
I have a great passion for Science and enjoy sharing the knowledge I have gained with both staff and students.
