Inspiring the next generation around the world

Babcock partnered with the UK Government in 2018 to promote STEM careers and inspire the next generation of engineers. By joining activities, initiatives and events across the country as well as establishing a new recruitment programme, our focus throughout the year was to change common perceptions about working in engineering and encourage more young people into STEM.
