Here is EEF's CEO Stephen Phipson sharing why the Year of Engineering is a campaign EEF enthusiastically supports.
Policy and campaigning
EEF campaigns to government on behalf of manufacturers. Find out about our work promoting the People and Skills needed for manufacturing to thrive in 2018.
Inspiring Future Engineers

Every year, we work with UK manufacturers to train hundreds of apprentices who will become the next generation of engineering leaders.
