Securing tomorrow’s engineers through apprenticeships

Feb 8, 2023

In this month’s The Engineer, our Chief Executive, Dr Hilary Leevers, takes a look at how employers can get involved with National Apprenticeships Week and how apprenticeships are helping to develop a workforce with future ready skills.

“With National Apprenticeship Week taking place this week (6 to 12 February), it’s an ideal time to consider the vital role apprenticeships play in supporting people into engineering, technology and technician careers. The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is ‘skills for life’. We’re being encouraged to reflect on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop valuable skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, while also enabling businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with future ready skills. This really resonates with our mission at EngineeringUK to inspire tomorrow’s engineers and secure a diverse and skilled future workforce.

“It’s always great to see many employers and organisations getting involved with this important week every year – from taking to social media to share your own stories of apprenticeships, to showcasing your current apprentices, there are many ways to show your support.”
