to allowa registrant to implement corrective actions.

balance between prescription and flexibility. Themost important qualitativemeasure


is that the record demonstrates reflection on the benefit gained fromthe activity. In so far as a framework is needed, the


competencies outlined in UK-Specwill be the principal reference point.


WHY WAIT – DO IT NOW!


The Society is already helpingmembers to maintain clear and compliant records through access via its website to the Engineering Council’s “MyCareerPath” online records keeping tool. TheMyCareerPath tool allowsmembers


to submit plans, evidence and reports as well asmaintain a list of all activities relating to CPD. The tool is available to any grade of SEEmembership.

The plenary session of Engineering the Future took place on 29 November at the IET headquarters at Savoy Place, London. This is essentially an annual reviewof the state of the engineering sector in the UK IET Chief Executive Nigel Fine introduced


the programme by saying that the profession needs to push the boundaries in the longer termand as far as Professional Engineers are concerned, to offer customer service to the profession that iswanted. Martin Powell (IStructE) and Bernie


Rickinson (IOM3) posed the question as to whether Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs)will exist in 2025, suggesting that some current problems were due to poor diversity, collaboration and communication. They suggested that young people see theworld as a continuum, rather than as departments, and that cluster activities could help to develop a seamless engineering community that could “share and save” and engender trust between the PEIs. Nick Baverstock fromthe Institution of


Civil Engineers reported on the progress of the Uff report saying that a final draft had been produced for fault checking and itwas hoped that the full reportwould be published in January 2017. Paul Jackson fromEngineering UK


introduced the 2017 annual report (the 19th 24 /// Environmental Engineering /// December 2016


edition) – a document that always contains huge amounts of information on the engineering sector. Here are some highlights:  During the past year the turnover of engineering companieswas some £1.2 trillion,which is around 26 per cent of GDP.  Amost interesting fact is that for every pound spent on engineering, some £2.45 is generated elsewhere in the economy. This is one of themost effectivemultiplierswithin any industry.  There aremore than 655,000 engineering companies in the UK, 27 per cent ofwhich are small- andmedium-size enterprises and 80 per cent are classified asmicro businesses. Some 5.7million people are employed in the sectorwith the large companies accounting for about 42 per cent of this employment.  About 51 per cent of 11 to 16-year-olds would nowconsider a career in engineering. This is an increase from40 per cent a year ago.  Around 45 per cent of STEMeducators believe pupils nowknowwhat engineers do.  Of the population, 65 per cent can now name an engineering innovation and this is a huge increase froma fewyears ago.  The Big Bang fair will take place at the BirminghamNEC fromWednesday the 15th to Saturday 18thMarch 2017.


The size of the samplewill be


“statistically relevant” rather than set in terms of percentages or absolute numbers. The SEEwill begin to request CPD records


fromearly 2017. The formal recording of CPD for Engineering Council Registrantswill be mandatory from2019,whichmeans sanctions could be applied in 2020.
