Providing information on aspects of education and skills for members and the public.
Education is crucial for creating the engineers of tomorrow. In order for the UK to maintain a competitive advantage we need to ensure that we have a sufficient pool of engineering talent to provide innovation and maintain growth. The IET seeks to influence the Government on issues relating to engineering education by providing position statements and briefing notes using the knowledge and experience from our experts.
This IET briefing outlines the measures we believe are vital to encouraging more young people into STEM subjects
