Enginiuity (formerly Semta) has recently launched two new initiatives that focus on engineering skills.
In light of the current crisis, and aspiring engineers being stuck at home, Enginuity and the Prince’s Trust have created online game Skills Miner – powered by artificial intelligence – to identify people that have what it takes to be future engineers. The game has been brought forward from the summer to allow thousands of people in lockdown to have fun – and find out if they’ve got what it takes to transit from the virtual to the real-world workplace.
Working with Made Smarter, Enginuity has also launched the ENGAGE platform, which delivers digital engineering skills in one place to Britain’s engineers and manufacturers.
ENGAGE is a learning hub specifically for the engineering and manufacturing sectors, offering a range of courses from easy first digital engineering steps to more sophisticated technologies and innovation. Development of the platform has been accelerated to support workers at a time when many may have found themselves furloughed. Helping engineers, technicians and wider manufacturing employees to learn and explore digital processes will also help support a much needed post-COVID 19 productivity boost by enabling them to learn the latest digital techniques.
