An introduction to AWE.

The programme

The programme covers areas ranging from engineering to project management, all of which are critical to helping us maintain the UK’s nuclear deterrent and protection.

During the programme, you’ll focus mainly on one or two projects or areas, gaining a deep insight into the work that is done in that specialism. You’ll be supported by a line manager and a mentor, who will help you to navigate your time with us and support you in developing the skills to build your career within the defence industry.

Your on-programme learning will combine a corporate induction to help you find your feet, on-job training and some classroom-based or online learning depending on your role.

Alongside this, your off-programme learning will include being part of an undergraduate group project team focusing on a business deliverable. We will give you every opportunity to network with other undergraduates, as well as the graduate community, so you can start building your business contacts at AWE.

At the end of the programme, you’ll have increased your knowledge and understanding within your subject area – and gained additional skills to help you in your future career.

The closing date for applications to the Undergraduate programme is 30 October 2019. Successful candidates must be available to attend a half day assessment Centre between 16 and 20 December 2019 and start on the programme in August 2020.
