Enginuity news, Industry news
We warmly welcome these findings which clearly set out a way forward for the sector to play an increasingly important role in this critical period for the economy of Wales.
The UK’s leading engineering skills organisation, Enginuity, has embraced a new report highlighting the importance of the sector in Wales, which was launched this week.
The report, a sector review from Qualification Wales, highlights the role that numerous companies, large and small plays in the country.
More than 165,000 people are employed within the sector, many at companies such as Airbus, Aston Martin, Tata Steel and Toyota – and hundreds of others that play an integral part in their supply chains.
Ann Watson, Chief Executive of Enginuity said:
“We warmly welcome these findings which clearly set out a way forward for the sector to play an increasingly important role in this critical period for the economy of Wales.
“Enginuity, including its international arm, has played an integral part conducting relevant research across five different countries along with regional industry events encompassing more than 20 different organisations.
“As the ‘sector connector’, our unique domestic and overseas insights, have been put to good use.
“We now have an opportunity to make qualifications for learners in Wales be made fit for the future, to feature contemporary content and technologies and meet the needs of a vastly evolving industry.”
The report highlights the strength of this key sector including the strong relationship between employers and learning providers.
It emphasises the value place on qualifications and apprenticeships and reports that most of the sectors’ stakeholders are satisfied with both.
