AWE’s Early Careers Lead, Caroline Bull, and four representatives from their graduate programme – Muir, Myles, Robbie and Bhaumik, who all started in September, visited the UTC.
Each representative introduced themselves and spoke about the range of opportunities available at AWE and the different career pathways you can follow. The students were particularly interested in the fact that Myles went to a UTC (the JCB Academy), and so had completed the same engineering course.
The second session was an assessment centre activity, helping students prepare for future job interviews and apprenticeships. Each group had to create a ball run with certain specifications and limitations, to run three differently sized balls through. They had an hour to plan and build, and were then asked to briefly present their construction back to the rest of the group.
Thank you to AWE for sharing such great insights with our students and supporting them in skills for the future.
