    Registration of engineers and technicians receives government backing



    The Engineering Council welcomes proposals by Lord Sainsbury's Technician Working Group for the creation of a Technician Council to promote registration of Engineering Technicians (EngTech) and Incorporated Engineers (IEng) - and their equivalents in science, health and ICT.

    The proposals were requested by Lord Mandelson in the 'Skills for Growth' White Paper in November 2009. The Government had recognised that intermediate skills were inadequately represented in the working population and insufficient status was awarded to engineering, science and health professionals at this level and above.

      I think its all going to come down to how its managed. I think its all going to come down to the criteria for registration, many ICT professionals have little or nothing in the way of accredited relevant qualifications so it has the potential to end up just being whoever can fill in the form and pay the registration fee gets it which makes the whole thing a rather pointless 'tax' on ICT professionals.
