Engineering Work Experience in Gloucester

Experience the worlds of engineering and manufacturing in this week-long placement

Engineering and Manufacturing Work Experience Placements Gloucester Early Careers

In early 2023, we started offering a revolutionary engineering-based work experience placement. The positive response we received from students was staggering, with many of those students expressing interest in working with us part-time or joining us for an apprenticeship. 

In the placement, you will be learning essential engineering skills for the 21st century, culminating in you being given a problem where you will need to engineer and test your solution by yourself, with your peers and us nearby to help. Throughout the week-long experience, you will learn:

  • Industry-standard 3D modelling software.
  • How to 3D print, including printer set-up and slicing software.
  • Working in our genuine production environment, alongside our automated robotic assembly cells.

Why choose us for your work experience placement?

  • This is not your regular work experience! We have created a week-long experience that takes you across multiple areas of the Engineering and Manufacturing industries, including 3D modelling, 3D printing, production, and more.
  • You will be supported by us throughout the week, with dedicated assistance and support available to you.
  • Feedback from our 2023 work experience was incredibly positive from both students and their schools. 

What do we look for in a work experience student?

  • You don’t need to have any previous engineering experience, just a curiosity to learn and experience the industry through a real work environment.
  • Your work experience will be taken in small groups of students, so the ability to work in a team and by yourself would be ideal.
  • We have multiple activities planned to give you a taste of different areas of our business. To ensure you get the most out of your experience with us, we ask that you give each of these your best attention and effort.
