The Code celebrates its first anniversary

Oct 14, 2021

Happy first birthday to The Code!

The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code was launched by EngineeringUK in October 2020 with the aim of increasing the number and diversity of young people entering engineering careers. It is a collection of organisations that commit to work towards 4 pledges: inspiring connection, driving inclusion, showcasing engineering and improving impact at a level of ambition relevant to them.

Below are some of The Code’s achievements over the past 12 months:

  • It has grown to over 160 members with support from Airbus UK, Department for Education, Imperial College London, Nissan, Royal Academy of Engineering, Science Museum, Shell UK, and Siemens
  • Over 150 attendees have taken part in the online workshops from 70 organisations
  • The Code Community has access to free resources to improve the impact of their work in the engineering sector - there are 28 resources available on the Tomorrow's Engineers website

Becca Thurston, Early Careers Manager at Code Signatory Wessex Water said:

“Joining the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code has helped add more structure and purpose to our careers engagement. The support and sign posting from our account manager has been amazing as well as providing points of reflect to ensure we’re making an impact. We are going to start using the Impact Framework and the Measures Bank tool (from the Tomorrow’s Engineers website) to help us to review the data we are collecting and the impact our activities and presence at events is having. Having access to the work of others is inspirational and reassuring.”

The next 12 months are guaranteed to be even better, with The Code planning on delivering more workshops to the community and continuing to share more information and guidance via the Tomorrow’s Engineers website.
