The graduate programme

UKAEA’s Graduate Development Programme will enable you to develop both general work-related skills and professional qualifications to excel in your chosen discipline.

The programme ensures that all graduates have access to a mentor with personal responsibility for helping them to develop their career plan and gain the right experience.

We also encourage you to achieve professional accreditation in your individual discipline. Our Graduate Development Programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) as a professional development scheme.

What does the development programme consist of?
The programme consists of core skills development for all graduates, together with development tailored for the individual. You will develop an individual learning and development plan which identifies the key technical and personal competencies you need to develop during your first two years and be supported in your development by your manager and a mentor. You will be given opportunities to learn from both on-the-job experience and other relevant training events.
