Each year has a checklist of activities that you can tick off as you progress with your apprenticeship. Don’t forget to record what you get up to as part of your Initial Professional Development (IPD).
Year one: identity
Register on MyIET, add your contact details and set up your interests to make sure you get the most relevant news and updates.
Create your action plan for the academic part of your apprenticeship. Think about what you need to work on most and see how we can help.
You’ll automatically receive your free copy of the award-winning E&T magazine - sign up to the E&T daily newsletter in MyIET to keep up to date with all the latest industry developments.
Check out IET.tv and watch a few Prestige Lectures.
Build up a list of go-to resources for non-standard problems. E&T and IET.tv are great places to start.
Build your network and meet up with other apprentices in your local IET Community.
Year three: support
Get serious about your professional registration application. Make sure your IPD is up to date on Career Manager and record your experience working on practical projects such as reliability maintenance, fault finding and problem-solving.
