Work and careers

Work experience, gap years and graduate schemes; all these options can support your career and professional development in many ways. 

Here, within the work and careers section of the website, we delve into these areas, offering you support on how to gain work experience and a place on a graduate scheme and also give you information on how to make the most of a gap year. We've also got a section dedicated to your early career - the first few years of working life post-graduation or apprenticeship. Here we get newly qualified engineers and technicians to share their "first job" experiences with you and much more.
