David Cameron talks about Engineering Careers
In a recent issue of Engineering Careers Magazine David Cameron gave an interesting interview about the future of engineering and young people. He is backing an initiative that will hopefully ensure that there will be sufficient new technicians for the future to cope with demand. David Cameron also continued to say that whilst schools are not to blame, apprenticeships and vocational study are not promoted strongly enough. Young people are not aware of the spectrum of options available to them and he wants businesses to become more involved.
Here at Ultra Precision we are actively trying to encourage this, whether it be by employing apprentices or having visits from local schools to get some early enthusiasm for a career in engineering.
