Preparing young people for careers within engineering and manufacturing

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Meg Munn MP recently met John Barber and Jackie Freeman from the Work-wise Foundation to learn about the work they doing in helping prepare young people for employment and careers within the engineering and manufacturing sectors.

Both Jackie and John share Meg’s passion to increase the numbers of girls working in these sectors of the economy, and they are undertaking a number of initiatives aimed at plugging gaps in the skills pipeline.

Work-wise recently held its annual ‘Get up to Speed’, (GUTS), event which helps young people, their families and teachers see some of the fastest vehicles, innovations and people on earth all in one place. GUTS was attended by over 700 young people, and Meg was delighted to hear that the girls came out on top in the ‘innovation’ competition; showing how important creativity is for engineering.

Meg said:

“Work-wise are doing invaluable work in showing young people how they can use engineering skills to solve real world problems, which is especially important to encourage more girls into the sector. It is great to see work-wise working hard to address the gender imbalance engineering currently faces, which makes economic and business sense for the Sheffield City Region.
