Tomorrow’s Engineers Code – Working together to inspire a diverse engineering workforce
Driving a new era of engagement
Engineering is a varied, stimulating and valuable career but we need to work harder than ever to ensure that it is accessible for this generation of young people – for their own life chances and so that we have a diverse and insightful workforce that enables the UK to thrive.
Many organisations are already doing important work to enthuse the next generation but there is evidence and widespread agreement that we must work better together to improve the quality, inclusivity, targeting and reach of activities designed to inspire young people.
The Code will improve collaboration between organisations that fund, design or deliver engineering-inspiration activities, to ultimately increase the diversity and number of those entering engineering.
Together, we can deliver a joined-up approach to drive change at scale.
The Code provides a robust approach to increasing our collective impact and our return on investment in engineering engagement. It will enable organisations to improve the impact of individual initiatives through collaboration with other Signatories.
Signatories of The Code make 4 pledges about their approach to funding, designing, delivering, and learning from engineering-inspiration activities.
Signatories have access to support that will empower them to meet the pledge areas including evidence based summaries of what works, case studies, and ideas for developing engagement programmes.
