North West Projects attends the IMEC Careers event, Engineering your Future
North West Projects Attended the IMEC Careers Event, Engineering Your Future (EYF), at Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club on the 9th November 2018, this was a joint exhibition stand with The Nuclear Institute Young Generation Network.
The following schools attended:
- Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School
- Lancaster Royal Grammar School
- Rochdale Sixth Form College
- Cardinal Newman College
The Exhibition part of the Careers Event lasted for approximately 1.5 hours from 12:00 mid-day to around 1:30pm
Ian Singleton, who attended the event to represent North West Projects, said:
‘It was very refreshing to talk to the students from the 4 schools and colleges as a large number of the students had a reasonable amount of knowledge of Nuclear Engineering and a number of them wanted to know the best way forward to apply to get involved into the nuclear industry
I responded by telling them that there is a number of ways to be able to enter the industry
- Serving an apprenticeship/degree through a company similar to NWP
- Going to one of the specialist university to take a degree in Nuclear Physics/Engineering then applying to one of the many companies working within the nuclear industry
Many of the students took one of my business cards and said they would be enquiring to NWP for either an apprenticeship or look to take an undergraduate position with the company to enable them to gain education experience through a scholarship with NWP.’
Overall, we feel that the event went well and hopefully inspired some of the younger generation to take up a career in engineering in the future.
