Engineering: Facing the Future – 10am

This programme explores the issues behind the widely reported skills shortage that engineering faces. The UK will need over 20,000 engineers within the next 20 years, which is way above the current levels entering the industry. We ask leading engineering experts about the Government’s focus on apprenticeships and their invested in to the pioneering Catapult Centres as training facilities. Bringing large volumes of skilled workers into the industry as well as retaining those already within engineering is a major challenge.
