The engineering industry is growing rapidly with an estimated 2 million new engineering jobs being created by 2022.
In 2011 there were only 430 female engineering apprentices compared to 13,900 males – that’s 3%. By 2012 half the total number of apprentices were female but women were still significantly under-represented in STEM and higher paying sectors such as engineering (4%).
