Year of Engineering 2018

Find out how we are supporting the Government's initiative

Throughout 2018 the Essex Employment and Skills Board will be supporting the Governments 'Year of Engineering' campaign to change perceptions, inspire young people and celebrate engineering achievements and role models in every corner of the UK. 

Working in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. We need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in.

Over the course of the year, people will have the chance to take a closer look at engineering and the variety of opportunities on offer. They can get to know one of the UK’s most innovative industries with open days, talks and activities happening across Essex and the country. 

Employers wanting to get involved please contact us at
