人们越来越担心,当前的课程限制了未来工程师的“工作准备”。当新学年正式开始时,许多学生要么继续深造,要么进入大学学习。但有人建议,教育和工作经验的平衡结合需要给予学生正确的技能和对现代工程职业的洞察力。越来越多的人担心,当前的课程限制了未来工程师的“工作准备”。IET最近对全英国工程技术雇主的调查发现,73%的雇主对有学术知识但缺乏工作技能的求职者感到困难。除了更加强调工作技能,还需要为a - level学生提供更多的就业指导,以提高毕业生的就业能力,帮助缩小日益扩大的工程技能差距。这还包括鼓励并认识到职业道路对工作的重要性,比如学徒制和T-Levels课程,现在距离这些课程只有一年的时间了。我同意斯蒂芬妮·巴克斯特,专业技能和教育政策的领导,谁说,尽管它是很棒的年轻人选择科学相关学科的增加今年(发表的数据显示条目茎科目都增加了男孩和女孩——整体自2010年以来增长了26.2%),对年轻人的学习给予支持是至关重要的。如果没有正确的教育、工作经验和职业指导,他们可能不会意识到自己可以胜任的工程职位范围之广,这反过来可能会加剧该行业的技能问题,并限制他们的工作准备。 T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the- job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship. T-Levels will also help bring logic and common sense to the thousands of qualifications employers and young people often struggle to navigate. Ultimately, developing the next generation of ‘homegrown’ engineering and technology talent that have the right practical skills for careers in modern engineering, requires a combination of education and work experience. T-Levels, in collaboration with employers and businesses, will hopefully help to fill this role and prove to increase the prestige of technical education as well as the overall attractiveness of an engineering career.
