An overview for educators

Background

The Tomorrow's Engineers programme, led by the engineering community, provides a platform for employers to work effectively with schools to inspire more young people to consider a careers in engineering.

We need more engineers. For that we need more young people to understand how what they learn at school is used in the real world. Giving young people the chance to talk directly to engineers and engage in hands-on activities that showcase and contextualise engineering is at the heart of the Tomorrow's Engineers approach.

Delivering national impact through local coordination, Tomorrow's Engineers has directly reached over 300,000 young people in the past year. The vision is to create a national network of employers working locally to reach 1m young people every year with effective careers interventions from STEM employers. Tomorrow's Engineers quality careers resources provide clear, consistent information for young people aged between 9 - 16, their teachers and parents.
