Wood has received reaccreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for its nuclear graduate scheme.

Reassessment takes place every three years and is an important process for the business, not least because the IET provides a structured route for employees to professional registration as an incorporated or chartered engineer. It also affords individuals a programme which is quality assured, ensuring they receive the best support for professional development and career progression.

After a rigorous recruitment process, successful applicants embark on a two-year scheme which comprises placements in host operational delivery units as well as a structured programme of activities and training in both technical and personal development topics.

Graduates are supported by the business for a further two to three years beyond the formal scheme as they continue to develop the competencies they require to become incorporated or chartered with the IET. A mentor is also provided for each graduate to provide technical support and advice throughout the programme.

Our nuclear graduate scheme is well regarded by both graduates and the wider nuclear industry. We are delighted to receive reaccreditation from the IET and continue to attract high calibre graduates into our business, helping to ensure a sustainable workforce for the future.
David Boath, vice president for nuclear and graduate scheme sponsor, Wood
