Tomorrow’s Engineers Code Gains Greater Momentum

18 January 2024

The number of organisations involved in the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code, established by EngineeringUK, has now surpassed 300 - with the likes of Renishaw now giving it support.

Defined as a commitment to work toward common goals and share best practices, so as to increase both the number and the diversity of youngsters entering engineering professions, it is backed by members from various parts of the commercial technology sector, along with government departments, charities, professional engineering institutions and education-related bodies. Through these members, major efforts are being made to improve engineering outreach programs in order to provide school pupils with greater awareness of the potential engineering career pathways they could pursue. Other members include Siemens, the IET, GE Aerospace, EDF Energy, Airbus, Equinor, Hydraulics Online, Babcock, Ørsted, IMechE, Sellafield, the Met Office, Centrica and Wessex Water. 

“We’re delighted that, in just over 3 years, The Code has grown to over 300 members. While there is already a lot of great work being done to inspire the next generation into engineering and technology, the workforce and skills shortage isn’t something that can be solved by any one organisation on its own,” states Cat Stuman, Senior Code Manager at EngineeringUK. “The Code aims to drive collaboration and grow the collective impact of engineering and tech inspiration and careers activities for young people. We’re proud of what the community has achieved so far and look forward to welcoming even more members over the coming year as we strive to deliver a joined-up approach to drive change at scale.” 

“Being a part of The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code gives Renishaw the opportunity to be a part of a flagship community that works collaboratively to influence and inspire more young people into engineering careers,” adds Rebecca Bound, Early Careers STEM Outreach Officer at Renishaw. “The Code is helping us to build and develop our outreach programs to engage further with underrepresented groups. The Code community also shares best practice and further understanding around the key challenges that we face in meeting our goals.” 

According to Coleen Forde, National Skills Co-Ordinator for Ørsted; “We joined The Code because we believe in organisations working together in a coordinated approach and sharing best practice in STEM engagement to inspire our future generations of engineers.”
