Target group

Candidates will be in a mid-level career position and feel they would personally benefit from the content of the course. We especially welcome candidates underrepresented in engineering – female, ethnic minority, LGBT+ and disabled candidates.

Programme is also open to candidates who may wish to return who may have been out of the engineering industry for a period of time and wish to come back.

This programme can also be delivered in-house should there be sufficient numbers to merit this and make it viable to run.
