Sector Connector Shares Vision
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.
Enginuity Announces Tom Brookes Best of British

Celebrating Achievements Together
The Enginuity Skills Awards are always a wonderful opportunity to recognise the very best talent from across industry, but this year will be extra special for a number of reasons.
Engineering Apprenticeships in Scotland
Scotland has a very proud history of engineering and going forward, our apprentices will play an important part in ensuring that tradition continues. In particular, they have a real chance to make a difference when it comes to helping the country achieve its aims for a cleaner, greener future.
National Apprenticeship Week
The 15th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England between 7th - 13th, will showcase the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships.
