Key Sectors

Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing

The skills shortage our industry is experiencing is in need of rectification; and the solution truly does lie within education. Teaching subjects like Engineering and showcasing the possible careers these skills can open doors to is massively important, whether it’s as a performance engineer in an F1 team, or an aerodynamicist for an aircraft manufacturer, there’s no end to what is achievable.
