Our work to implement policy that supports the sector.

We are passionate about making government policy work effectively for the sector. Where governments can do better, we work with policy stakeholders and decision makers across the UK to improve policy settings.  

We also work with a wide range of stakeholders across the four nations to help ensure that government policy which benefits the sector is implemented successfully. 

We draw on our expertise and data insights to provide evidence-based responses to consultations, reviews, and inquiries into government policy on engineering and manufacturing education and skills. We have listed below the current consultations of interest to the sector.
