With globalisation a reality, many countries are focusing on developing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as part of their long-term economic strategy. English is now the common language of science (formerly it was German) and it is now more important than ever for students looking to enter any engineering discipline. For example, in the US alone, more than two million STEM jobs were created in the last decade that couldn’t all be filled domestically, resulting in international recruitment opportunities, according to TIMS (the International Math and Science Study).
For those in work, having a strong proficiency of English as well as knowing the specific vocabulary is critical in both the spoken and written format. Whether it’s to read or product reports, understand complex instructions and process in the field or ensuring adherence to strict health and safety and other critical insurance requirements, English will be present in every part of your role when dealing with international parts, services, partners, clients and Lloyds Insurance.
