Celebrating the Engineering Festival

Last Friday, I held the Wiltshire Festival of Engineering, supported by James Dyson Foundation and Wiltshire Air Ambulance, inspiring more than 3,000 children and involving more than 35 businesses and organisations. The Schools Minister kindly attended. The event highlighted that Wiltshire really is a hub of engineering. Today in UK Parliament I asked if the Minister would confirm that the new careers strategy will encourage a better link between schools and businesses, and prioritise sectors with severe skills shortages, such as STEM!
