Girls Engineering the Future equips young women with the confidence, skills and awareness to enter the engineering industry. A partnership of a group of large engineering apprentice employers, the Smallpeice Trust and the Outward Bound Trust, the project aims to double the number of female apprentices within the member companies to 14% by training young female role models to work with schools located near the companies involved. “It has been fantastic as all the girls now say they would look into apprenticeships in engineering when before they wouldn’t even have thought about it”, Emma Bruce, Heanor Gate School.
