Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (#TEWeek16) takes place from 7-11 November 2016 and aims to change perceptions of engineering among young people, their parents and teachers to inspire future engineers.
Andrew Carlick,CEO of DBD Group said: "At DBD, one of our long term commitments to provide for a sustainable business is the recruitment and continued professional development of the younger generation. It is key that we work with school's and academia to help inspire children and young adults to choose a STEM subject as an exciting and rewarding pathway for them to take. STEM initiatives like Tomorrow’s Engineers are a crucial part that provides for this inspiration and I would like to take the opportunity to give it my wholehearted support."
Paul Jackson, Chief Executive at EngineeringUK, said: “DBD and others like it around the UK are embracing Mission Inspiration during TOmorrow's Engineers Week. Engineering makes a vital contribution to the UK economic growth and offers a wealth of varied and rewarding careers. To ensure British engineering continues to thrive we need to inspire future engineers.
Engineering companies will have over 2.5 million job openings over this decade, across a diverse range of disciplines. However, we need many more school children, particularly girls, choosing the GCSEs, A levels, apprenticeships, degrees or other vocational pathways that will lead to engineering careers.”
