General Dynamics 2012 professional registration scheme.
2012 was another successful year for General Dynamics UK’s professional registration scheme. Building on the success of previous years, the company expects to assist even more engineers to gain professional registration, with mentors playing a vital role in this success.
In order to celebrate its success, and ensure that all the mentors are involved with the scheme, General Dynamics UK holds internal mentor networking sessions for all active professionally registered mentors twice a year. These events enable the company to provide updates to its active mentors whilst providing a platform for employees to give feedback about the scheme and discuss any particular areas that should be reviewed in the future.
Through the networking sessions and support from the IET’s Justin Mingaye, the scheme has acted on the feedback and delivered a number of initiatives including the creation of an internal professional registration wiki site, providing more formal training for newly registered engineers, as well as a comprehensive communication plan to raise awareness of professional registration across the business. These events are always well received and are an important element of making the scheme a success.
