Skills Partnership

'Supporting and empowering businesses to grow a diverse future workforce in engineering’

The EngineeringUK Skills Partnership is a network of employers working together to raise the profile of UK engineering with young people, schools and parents.

We want to grow the future workforce by effectively engaging with young people and providing opportunities for them to make informed choices about a career in STEM.

Employers participate in the Skills Partnership at different levels, with different motivations and in ways that best meet their needs. What unites them is a fundamental belief that the UK needs more (and more diverse) engineers and that a concerted, informed collective effort can make that happen.
