UK manufacturing and engineering are growing (turnover is up 9% since 2008) and the growth is forecast to continue. But to do this, we’re going to need to recruit 182,000 people with engineering skills every year until 2022, including
- 107,000 at level 4+ (degree or equivalent) that’s 30% more than currently
- 56,000 per year at level 3 (Advanced Apprenticeships) more than double the current intake
- Overall, we need 50% more engineers than we currently have
So there are great job prospects for people with manufacturing and engineering skills and the Apprenticeship and Careers Show covers everything from subject choices at school, further education choices, work experience and apprenticeships, plus the grants and financial help available.
