EEF and Rolls-Royce have launched a nationwide hunt to find the UK’s most talented young engineers of the future as part of the fifth Future Manufacturing Awards.
The Young Engineering Student Award, sponsored by Rolls-Royce, will be awarded to the student who has benefited the most from completing their Key Stage 4 engineering studies and, whose achievements have allowed them to map out and embark on a career path within the manufacturing sector.
“A skilled workforce is essential to the future success of advanced manufacturing,” says Neil Fowkes, learning and development manager, Rolls-Royce. “We are therefore delighted to sponsor this award which will recognise outstanding achievement and encourage talented, enthusiastic young people to begin a rewarding career in engineering.”
Now in its fifth year, the Future Manufacturing Awards offer manufacturers and apprentices from across the UK the opportunity to showcase their achievements across eight different award categories: business growth, people and skills, innovation, export, health and safety, environment, apprentices and young engineering students.
“The Future Manufacturing Awards has established itself as the biggest and most prestigious event in the manufacturing sector. This is our time to celebrate our manufacturing champions and the young apprentices who are shaping the future,” says EEF chief executive Terry Scuoler.
The Awards are free to enter, with a closing date of 19th July. For more information visit http://www.eef.org.uk/awards.
