As an Associate All-party Parliamentary Group, operating under official all-party group rules, our membership comprises parliamentarians from Houses, consumer groups, academic institutions and technology companies.

e-skills UK is making sure Britain is getting the technology skills it needs to succeed. As the Sector Skills Council for Business and Information Technology, we work on behalf of employers to develop the software, internet, computer gaming, IT services and business change expertise necessary to thrive in today’s global digital economy.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is a world leading professional members’ organisation, which promotes the exchange of information and ideas for the advancement of science, engineering and technology worldwide.
There is a desperate need for more engineers and technicians so the IET has a major programme of support and activities for students and teachers to encourage uptake of the right subjects at school and to encourage young people to pursue engineering careers. The programme includes free teaching and careers resources, activity days, competitions, funding, scholarships and STEM Ambassadors.
