Today will see the launch of the governmental “Year of Engneering” initiative; a year-long series of activities that aim to tackle the current and future skills gap across engineering.
Ministers from across the government are joining forces with the engineering community to drive a series of initiatives and events set to change perceptions of engineering whilst highlighting the opportunity that careers in the industry hold for young people.
Integral Powertrain Ltd’s expanding business has, over several years, focussed on guiding young engineering talent on their way to significant careers in a multitude of disciplines. (Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Software, Business Management etc.)
What’s on offer?
SMEs have a significant role to play in making sure that the positions they seek to fill, as their business grows, has a steady stream of educated and passionate individuals to fill them. For many, a career within an SME offers much greater job satisfaction, as roles often carry a higher level of empowered responsibility leading to enhanced personal satisfaction.
How can we ensure success?
The challenge is to ensure that those capable of enjoying a long and fruitful career, with a talent in a STEM discipline, recognise engineering as the key delivery mechanism to the ‘real world’ products and services we far too often take for granted. Engineering is a vocation for people that love to just do.
