Thursday 6th February saw the launch of 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. Individuals and employers need the skills that will allow them to flourish, now and in the future.
That’s why Enginuity creates 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:
“Digital technologies can discover and identify young people who have the aptitude for a career in engineering and manufacturing. New platforms can help individuals make currently unaccredited skills visible to employers, and suggest where they need to upskill or reskill. Better data about the skills employers need today and tomorrow, can open an individual’s career path into a Skills Universe, with more routes to fulfil their potential, with more employers, in more areas.
“Marrying our 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.”
