The Employer: Engineering Council
The Engineering Council holds the national Register of Engineering Technicians (EngTech), Incorporated Engineers (IEng), Chartered Engineers (CEng) and Information and Communication Technology Technicians (ICTTech). It also sets and maintains the internationally recognised standards of competence and ethics that govern the award and retention of these titles. By this means it is able to ensure that employers, government and wider society, both at home and overseas, can have confidence in the skills and commitment of registrants. For more information visit: www.engc.org.uk
From 1 January 2018, employers will be able to nominate the Engineering Council as the provider of quality assurance (known as External Quality Assurance or EQA) for engineering-related Trailblazer Apprenticeships. The Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) website sets out the quality assurance process for apprenticeships and how this will ensure quality, consistency and credibility: www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/quality/external-quality-assurance/

IncEng is a UK based network which aims to bring together the under-represented groups within the engineering sector to form an inclusive, informal and coordinated platform of likeminded stakeholders, who are able to gain strength in working together on common issues. Many groups exist within engineering which champion under represented parts of the workforce, such as women, black and minority ethnic workers, members of the LGBTQ community, and workers with dyslexia. Many other individuals within engineering do not have a coordinated voice, such as disabled workers, those from oversees, and older employees. IncEng aims to bring all of these under-represented groups together to form a stronger voice and to share resources and evidence, working together to achieve a coordinated outcome of improved diversity and inclusion within engineering.
