Engineering web site launched to combat skills shortages

The Engineering Employers Federation has launched a new web
site designed to recruit school leavers into the engineering industry.

As part of its engineering connections initiative, the EEF
is inviting employers to register their apprenticeship vacancies on the web by
April. This will give employers the pick of next summer’s school leavers, claims
the EEF.

“There is an urgent need to recruit high-calibre young
people to replace qualified engineers due to retire over the next ten years,”
says Ann Bailey, EEF head of education and training.
