Our Managing Director’s letter to the Sunday Times

Posted 18th October 2016 By TTE Press Office

 

Sir,

There has to be a significant culture change if we are to encourage more girls into careers in engineering, which has to start from the moment they enter education

As a technical training provider in the North East of England, it is a real challenge to encourage girls onto engineering programmes; yet the quality of those that do follow that path is exceptionally high and they become real assets to their employers.

There is often little synergy between what is taught in schools and the career opportunities open to young people in engineering until they reach further or higher education, which is often far too late.

The Government needs to increase the pace of change in education before the UK engineering sector is left behind.

An increasingly vocational curriculum, which places Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) at the heart of learning and captures and maintains the interest of young people throughout their education, will be essential to the future prosperity of the UK economy.

Yours faithfully,

Steve Grant

Managing Director

TTE Technical Training Group
