Matchtech becomes an official partner for the Year of Engineering
We are pleased to announce that we have become an official partner for the Year of Engineering, a UK Government-led campaign designed to tackle the engineering skills gap and inspire more young people to join the profession.
Commenting on our partnership, Grahame Carter, Managing Director at Matchtech said:
“With so many exciting projects in the pipeline, including the ground-breaking HS2 and Thames Tideway schemes, addressing the pipeline for people skills has never been more pertinent for the UK engineering sector. As an official partner to the Year of Engineering, we’re thrilled to be playing an active role in promoting engineering as a career choice to younger people.”
The campaign will be targeted predominantly at young people, aged 7-16, increasing awareness and understanding of what engineers do and dispelling myths surrounding the profession. The initiative will also help educate young people about how a career in engineering gives you the chance to make a genuine difference to our society and the world we live in.
In support of the campaign, we are sharing a series of articles and insights across our website and social media channels that offer people advice on how to get into engineering.
