Take your Kids to Work (if you are an Engineer)


Bringing your Kids to work is an opportunity for employees to introduce their children to the working world and potentially sow the seeds for their future careers.

For the UK Engineering and Manufacturing Industry, these seeds cannot be sown quick enough. It was over 18 months ago that Prof Perkins published his report highlighting the seriousness of the UK’s Engineering shortfall...“If we are to compete in the global race,” Perkins argued, “we need to equip our people with the skills to adapt, innovate and flourish.” However a recent report, Engineering UK 2015 - The State of Engineering shows that whilst engineering accounts for a quarter (24.9%) of UK Turnover, the industry needs more engineers.

Engineering companies will require 182,000 people a year with engineering skills in the decade to 2022, but there is a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers.

We are already seeing the results of this here at Technical Network, it is not uncommon for new, qualified engineers to be placed into roles up to six months before they finish their course.

Businesses are taking steps to remedy the situation. Rennishaw for example, is involved in the innovative Young Engineers charity, an organization dedicated to steering more secondary school aged children to the STEM subjects via promoting fun engineering themed challenges.

We would like to hear your thoughts on what your employer is doing/could be doing to encourage more young people into the engineering industry.
