The CBI yesterday welcomed the launch of the Government’s ‘See Inside Manufacturing’ initiative which enables pupils, teachers and careers advisers to see firsthand some of the UK’s world-class automotive facilities and research centres to provide a better understanding of career opportunities in these areas.

Tim Bradshaw, CBI Head of Enterprise & Innovation, said:

“This programme gives pupils, teachers and careers advisors an invaluable practical insight into our leading automotive industry. It will provide a fresh perspective on the many different skills and careers available to help inspire the next generation of researchers, designers and engineers.

“We would urge all schools to take advantage of this great opportunity to learn more about our world-class manufacturing industries.”
