On 6th February the Semta Group, the employer-led skills body supporting the UK’s engineering & manufacturing sectors, became Enginuity, a new organisation dedicated to creating skills solutions for individuals, educators, and engineering and manufacturing employers, who want to see and develop the skills needed to succeed, today and tomorrow.
Engineers are at the forefront of tackling many of the biggest societal challenges we face today. At the same time, Industry 4.0 is rapidly changing engineering and manufacturing. To seize the commercial opportunities these challenges and this change creates, the manufacturing and engineering sector needs to adapt fast.
The Semta Group is becoming Enginuity to create practical skills solutions using unmatched industry expertise and data. Helping engineering and manufacturing employers make smarter decisions about the opportunities they give to individuals.
Ann Watson, Chief Executive of Enginuity explains:
“Marrying our existing engineering expertise with ingenuity with data, is how we will design and constantly improve skills solutions that provide a great user experience for employers, educators and individuals. It’s how we will create new products and services that are easy for employers and educators to integrate. It’s how we will prove the business case for engineering skills development.
“Digital platforms can help individuals make currently unaccredited skills visible to employers, suggest where they need to upskill or reskill, and open their career path into a skills universe, with more routes to fulfil their potential.”
The practical skills solutions already offered by the Semta Group and EAL (the Semta Group’s specialist skills partner and awarding organisation for industry) will continue as part of Enginuity, but better data will only improve these solutions by making them even more responsive to current and future needs.
