Semta - the Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies Alliance - is a not-for-profit responsible for engineering skills. As an organisation led by employers, Semta aims to transform the skills and productivity of the engineering and advanced manufacturing sectors. They bring together employers and education to focus action on skills. They are committed to inspiring the next generation of engineers and drive excellence in STEM teaching to provide for the needs of UK plc.
Semta and Collab Group undertake a range of partnership activity to promote career paths within the engineering sector. This includes working to create joint thought leadership pieces focussed on demystifying routes into engineering & building and the development of a joint campaign to promote engineering to young people. We are also investigating opportunities to create short taster courses for those considering a career within the sector.
SEMTA works in a variety of ways towards promoting engineering and manufacturing skills:
Providing career advice and laying out different career paths for engineers in the different regions of the UK.
Reviewing and setting the National Occupational and Standards for their sectors.
Working with policy makers and opinion formers to advise on skills and education policy.
Linking apprentices with employers to fulfill career ambitions and match the needs of the industry.
Working with employers, education and the government to meet the global needs of the industry.
