Watch the virtual launch of the Tomorrow's Engineers Code

The virtual launch of the Tomorrow's Engineers Code is available to watch again here.

The results from the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code first annual check-in are in!

To mark The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code’s first anniversary, the Community were asked to complete The Code check-in. The Code check-in is an annual review that captures insights into how successfully we, as a community are working towards meeting the 4 Pledges and what support is needed to improve the collective efforts to inspire a diverse engineering workforce.

Watch these videos to find out

what the check-in has told us about The Code

and what’s next for Code

What has The Code achieved?

Since launching in October 2020, the Code has grown to around 200 organisations. Results from the check-in found that the majority of Signatories were positive about The Code. When asked how likely it is that they would recommend joining The Code to a friend or colleague, Signatories on average gave a score of 8 (on a scale of 0-10). Furthermore, 61% agreed that being a member of The Code improved the way their organisation includes information that shows engineering’s diversity in terms of roles and opportunities.

 

What have we learnt from the check-in?

The findings from the check-in have provided The Code team with some great insight about the areas that Signatories would like more support, including:

  • understanding what’s happening across the sector
  • targeting young people or schools that don’t typically participate in engineering
  • measuring impact and evaluation of engineering outreach activities

 

Next steps include

  • creating an online search tool to support connections and help understand what engineering outreach is being provided by other Signatories across the community
  • an in-person Tomorrow’s Engineers event taking place during early July 2022, to share best practice and provide a great networking opportunity
  • continuing to develop resources on Tomorrow’s Engineers and provide opportunities for Signatories to share learnings and best practice at regular workshops, particularly across the areas identified above

The Code check-in has been a hugely insightful tool which has enabled us to understand more about the fantastic work which Signatories have already done towards The Code’s 4 pledges. These findings will help shape the development of The Code over the next 12 months and will help us to accelerate our shared ambition to inspire the next generation of engineers.
