star this property answer text <p>To ensure young people have the skills needed for jobs in engineering we are investing in programmes to increase the take-up of mathematics, by incentivising schools using the recently launched advanced mathematics premium. We are also supporting better teaching of mathematics, physics and computing in schools, including a new £84 million programme to improve computing teaching.</p><p> </p><p>We are improving careers advice in schools – including ensuring that pupils are exposed to science, technology, engineering and mathematics jobs. These encounters with employers and apprenticeships are now built into school career programmes since we have updated the school and college statutory guidance.</p><p> </p><p>Engineering and all it brings is at the heart of economic success and provides exciting opportunities of fulfilling careers. This year we are running a cross-government, national campaign - the ‘Year of Engineering’ – which aims to raise the profile of engineering among 7 to 16 year olds and widening the pool of young people that consider engineering as a career.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The department recently conducted the latest Employer Skills Survey, which provides robust assessments of skills shortages across the UK by region and by sector. The results of this survey will be published later in 2018 and will provide insight into different industries’ skill needs. Whilst we cannot identify General Aviation specifically through the survey, data relating to the aviation sector as a whole will be made available to the public. Findings from the previous Employer Skills Survey in 2015, which was run by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, are available on <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/ukces-employer-skills-survey-2015" target="_blank">GOV.UK</a>. The department also holds responsibility for Working Futures, which provides labour market projections at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-labour-market-projections-2014-to-2024" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-labour-market-projections-2014-to-2024</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The department is also making our skills system more responsive to employer needs. As part of this, the department is forming Skills Advisory Panels, which aim to bring about a closer alignment between skills supply (from FE Colleges, training providers, apprenticeships, as well as centrally-held programmes) and local employer demand.<strong> <br> </strong></p>
