Joining The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code has helped add more structure and purpose to our careers engagement. The support and sign posting from our Account Manager has been amazing as well as providing points of reflection to ensure we’re making an impact. We are going to start using the Impact Framework and the Measures Bank tool to help us to review the data we are collecting and the impact our activities and presence at events is having. Having access to the work of others is inspirational and reassuring. We’re all doing excellent work, and it’s awesome to see it all together on platforms connected to The Code like Neon.

“Unipres (UK) Limited has a longstanding relationship with EngineeringUK so when their Business Partnership Manager Moira Shaftoe approached us with the concept of The Code we jumped at the chance to be a part of it. We saw this as a perfect opportunity to collaborate with other organisations to shape the way young people are given the chance to engage in engineering inspiration activities. I recently attended a Code Collaboration workshop where all the attendees were able to input into how code community can work together and shape future developments.” - Rob Dodds, Apprentice Coordinator, Unipres
‘Nissan was approached about getting involved at the early stages of the development of the Code and was heavily involved in giving feedback and making suggestions as to how it could be improved and what the key focus areas should be. We are passionate about engaging young people and raising the profile of the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering sectors. If we can influence the next generation of engineers and production staff and get more of the supply base involved in these activities, it will only help strengthen the talent pool and future prosperity of these companies.’ - Ian Green, Senior Controller / Section Manager - Global Training Centre and Nissan Skills Foundation
As a significant Engineering employer, we take our commitment to inspiring young people very seriously.

“The future of the Engineering industry lies with the next generation. It is our responsibility as employers and leaders to inspire and train this next generation.
Tomorrow's Engineers Code helps show the world that we as a business are committed to do our part in shaping that new future. It is our commitment to do our part.”

It is such a dynamic time for skills at the moment – negative and positive for young people, not only do we have the major issues of our age, the mega trends such as climate change, glocalization, demographic change, urbanization, digitalization but the pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we work and the skills we need to operate productively. This is why Siemens is delighted to be a signatory of The Tomorrows Engineers Code, as The Code provides a robust approach to increasing our collective impact and commitment to inspiring and exciting young people into STEM careers. The code reinforces the message that engineering and technology makes a difference to society through innovation, digital technologies and the circular economy - this means embracing the process of integrating the real and the digital worlds, a gigantic leap forward for our future entry level skills and we can only do this with strong collaboration with like-minded organisations.
