The IET inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world. As a diverse home across engineering and technology, they share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter.

Following the success of IN4.0 and IET working together on IN4.0 ACCESS in 2019, this new partnership will allow for even more collaboration, providing opportunities for both sides to grow and expand their networks and spheres of influence.  The partnership will see the organisations working together on the IN4.0 Talent Academy, a fast-track graduate recruitment and development programme designed to act as a bridge between talented, ambitious and diverse graduates and employers in the North West.

As part of the academy, graduates will benefit from their first year of membership to the IET, putting them on the path to achieving their IET chartered engineer status.  With a focus on cloud and digital skills, the academy reflects a shared interest on both sides to both broaden the perception of engineering and the nature of the profession.

Both the IET and IN4.0 Group share a great desire to empower future leaders which creates the perfect template for both organisations to succeed in delivering an industry leadership programme across the North West region.
