We spoke to Richard Thomas, who is currently working with us as part of this initiative.

Richard Thomas

“Everyone is under so much pressure to get things done we have forgotten to pass the basics on to our young engineers. There are building blocks which when taught, give foundations to all that goes thereafter. The gut instinct of what is right and what is wrong is part of engineering. These basic building blocks help in getting this core understanding firmly at the centre of a young engineers career, giving them the foresight to see a situation which cannot be taught from a book.”

“I don’t want to let my experience nor anyone else’s for that matter just disappear into the ether when we all at one point face retirement. Joining the Wallace Whittle Academy team means being given the opportunity to pass on knowledge to the next generation and it’s already been rewarding. I would absolutely recommend getting involved.”

If you’re passionate about making a difference in the industry and eager to support the next generation of engineering professionals, we encourage you to get in touch. Join us in shaping the future of engineering excellence!
