Published: 16/04/2021

cover of Guidance on SustainabilityThe Engineering Council has published updated Guidance on Sustainability as part of its suite of guidance for practicing engineers. Although not written specifically for an HE audience, this document and others in the suite may be useful to academics and engineering students. The guidance covers areas in which students who have completed accredited programmes will expect to demonstrate learning outcomes. Other guidance in the suite covers the topics of whistleblowing, security, safety and risk, as well as the Statement of Ethical Principles.

In addition, the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and the Science Council have updated their Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Progression Framework - now version 2.0. The Framework is a unique tool that helps professional bodies track and plan progress on D&I across key areas of professional body activity. The updated Framework and Guidance on using it are available on the Science Council website and the results of the last benchmarking exercise on the RAEng website.
