This week, 2-6 November, was Tomorrow’s Engineers week and CSWIP took up the call to encourage young people into a career in Engineering. As an End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for Apprenticeships, TWI Certification Ltd (TWI CL) has a front row seat, and plays an important role, in inspiring and confirming the competence of the next generation of engineers. We take this responsibility very seriously and work hard to highlight engineering as a career choice throughout all our activities.
We began Tomorrows Engineers week by putting the spotlight on one of TWI CL’s Compliance Verification Engineers, Steve Herron, who told us all about the skills he uses as an engineer and what he loves most about engineering. We moved onto the Big Quiz, aimed at students aged 11-16, to help them develop their engineering knowledge and provide information on how to become an engineer. We looked at the great work that TWI is doing in becoming a founding signatory of the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code, as well as shared the inspiring story of Badr El-Sayed, who tells us the importance of his CSWIP certification to his career.
While Tomorrow’s Engineers week is a UK initiative, the message it sends is relevant across the globe and, as such, CSWIP works hard to be a part of global initiatives too. The CSWIP and BGAS-CSWIP certification schemes are an important part of the South East Asia Skills Enhancement Programme (SEASEP). SEASEP is an international vocational training initiative designed to upskill people in South and East Asian countries, with the ultimate aim to tackle in-country skill shortages and reduce occupational fatalities by bringing engineering-related skills and education to disadvantaged and under-represented groups.
