Andrew Joseph, Director at E3R who attended the event commented: “To address the skills gap engineering and manufacturing faces, it is more important than ever that we promote our industry to young people, advising them on the opportunities and careers that are open to them. It is also vital we create an interest pre-high school to educate and influence them before they begin studying for their GCSEs.”
