(Above): The CECA South West Foundations Group held their quarterly meeting at our CECA SW Exeter office on Thursday 12 May 2022: Whilst everyone tucked into their pizza, Karen Woodward, Business Partnership Manager of South West Engineering UK, gave an inspiring presentation regarding the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code. The code showcases to young people the impact that a career in engineering can have. The slides from Karen’s presentation can be found here.

Next Tuesday (24 May), CECA SWFG have planned a site visit to Devonport Dockyard and further to the great success of the National Apprenticeship Show in March, it was agreed that they would take a stand at next year’s show at Sandy Park.
