Engineering skills: Perkins review progress report


The Perkins review of engineering skills, published in November 2013, called for government, employers, educators and the profession to work together to increase engineering skills supply. We have taken on many of the recommendations from the review as set out in this report written in partnership with the engineering community.

The engineering community has looked at improving employer engagement across the education system. It has made a commitment to maintain the long-term work initiated by Perkins through the Engineering the Future consortium. View information about their work and plans.
