The future prosperity of the UK economy is dependent upon young people taking up engineering as a career and that manufacturing companies have the right skills in place to expand our manufacturing base in the UK.

Companies often remark on the lack of quality young people entering the industry and their concerns at the UK’s lack of future skills. The Tooling Trust, is actively trying to address this situation, but we need to do more to assist the UK’s manufacturing sector to develop and prosper in today’s global economy. The Trust is constantly seeking other methods of supporting the industry in order to assist in the preservation and development of the UK’s manufacturing base.
