A report describes the current male domination of manufacturing, technological, engineering, and computing (MTEC) industries in the UK, and suggests approaches to correcting this. The situation in the UK is poor in isolation, and significantly inferior to that in other Northern European countries. There is a significant gender gap in science A-level participation and at degree level. However, woman engineering and technology graduates are more likely to be employed and less likely to be unemployed than men. The conclusions derived are that merely increasing the number of woman STEM graduates will probably not be effective but that there is a need to increase the number of girls taking Physics as an A-level subject, that businesses, schools and universities should jointly campaign to emphasise the social and personal opportunities of MTEC employment for women, and that campaigns must use language that is comprehensible to pupils and parents.
