We work formally and informally with a range of other organisations in the engineering sector and beyond to develop and inform our view on a range of policy issues from careers provision to T levels and apprenticeships. We regularly partner with others on research and events and believe that our voice is the most powerful when in agreement with others.
We are a member of the National Engineering Policy Centre, a partnership of 42 professional engineering organisations that cover the breadth and depth of the engineering profession, led by the Royal Academy of Engineering. The NEPC provides insights, advice and practical policy recommendations on complex national and global challenges.
All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups within parliament. They are run by and for members of the Commons and Lords, though many choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside parliament in their administration and activities. They are useful platforms for discussions on a range of issues and are often used to raise attention of issues of concern.

APPG on apprenticeships
The All Party Parliamentary Group on apprenticeships is a cross-party group of MPs and Peers which provides a forum for parliamentarians and employers to discuss how to promote the role of high quality apprenticeships. The Group works to ensure that apprenticeships serve as a pathway to a career and how the apprenticeship model can meet the changing skill demands from businesses.
