Tomorrow's Engineers Week 2023
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (TEW) returns on the 6 November this year and the inspiring Worcestershire Team are spotlighting the week to showcase the fantastic opportunities within the sector.
The Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing (AME) sector is one of Worcestershire’s priority sectors and is key to the future growth of Worcestershire’s Economy, particularly in driving innovation and increasing productivity.
On this page, you can access new resources which encourage students to gain insights into the sector and the local pathways, in addition to information on local and national events taking place during and post TEW.
We would recommend you sign up to the Tomorrows Engineers Week mailing list, which you can access using the link below:
If you would like to discuss how you can adapt these resources to suit the needs of your students, feel free to get in touch with the team.
In this resource guide you will find information on the new resources produced for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, including ideas on how these could be delivered, what benchmarks they contribute to and answers to the quiz.

Future Female Engineers Event
Coordinated by the Inspiring Worcestershire Team and hosted at Mazak UK, this event will bring together Worcestershire employers and training providers to showcase the fantastic opportunities available within the Engineering Sector.
This event is targeted at female students in years 9, 10 and 11 and will provide the students and their families the opportunity to hear from a number of female representatives from the industry. There will be a chance to tour the Mazak site in addition to networking with other businesses and providers.
Students do not need to have a pre-existing interest in engineering, but they may be interested in wider STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, maths). The evening is about presenting options and developing curiosities in industries and pathways that may not have been previously considered.
Date: 13 December 2023
Time: 5:00pm to 07:30pm
Venue: Mazak, Badgeworth Dr, Worcester, WR4 9NF
