What are we doing
The Engineering Council is currently carrying out our five-yearly review of our Standards, including the requirements for registration as a professional engineer or technician, along with the rules and guidelines for carrying out registration and the processes that support it. These are set out in a series of publications.
How you can contribute
Consultation is central to this review and we are keen to hear from anyone (or any group) who has an interest in the content of the Standard or how it works. You can contribute by answering as many as possible of the questions in the consultation.
Which sections of the consultation to complete
On this page are links to sections of the consultation, grouped around either a subject area or a Standards publication. To help you identify the areas of particular interest to you the links to each section, below, include a summary of the areas they cover. You are invited to answer any or all of the questions, all of which are optional.
There is a PDF copy of all the consultation questions to help with coordination of responses.
We would greatly value your views on how relevant and simple to complete the consultation was, if you could take a few moments when you have finished to provide some feedback. Thank you.
The consultation closes midnight on 24 October 2018. If you have any comments or questions about the consultation process, please email us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your contribution.
The Engineering Council
Broad issues about the changing nature of engineering and the effect that these will have on the education and skills needs of engineers.
Principles that underpin the requirements for engineers and technicians to demonstrate competence and commitment when seeking registration with the Engineering Council, related issues such as the value of registration and of international recognition of the Standard.
Accreditation of degree programmes, demonstrating that they meet the standards set by the profession; how well this is achieved, how well the requirements are articulated and the challenges of accreditation.
Approval of qualifications that provide knowledge and skills required for professional registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech); approval of apprenticeships that support professional registration at EngTech level and above, how well this is achieved, how well the requirements are articulated and the challenges of approval.
Proposals for the Engineering Council to provide a form of recognition for higher apprenticeships; how this might be achieved, what recognition should be provided and a possible model for that provision.
