Growth for Aerospace and Defence in North West




Insights , Enginuity News


“The Aerospace and Defence industry in the North West is shifting to meet the challenges from increased competition, climate change and technological advancements. The region has a strong history in the sector, with major players such as BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce investing heavily in emerging technologies such as electric and hybrid propulsion, UAVs, and next generation fuel systems. Like the Midlands, the North West is faced with significant challenges in obtaining the skilled workforce required to support these emerging technologies.

However, initiatives such as apprenticeships and training programmes are being developed to address these challenges and ensure the region has a talent pipeline that delivers the new skills required. Collaborations between industry, education, and skills stakeholders, including the work being done by Enginuity, are essential to make the most effective sustained investment in skills development and take best advantage of the training programmes and apprenticeships being developed.” – Ann Watson, CEO, Enginuity
