BAE work experience opportunity

Posted by Claire Harwood - 7 months ago

For now, the only date open for applications is 29 January – 1 February 2024. We will officially launch the remainder of dates in January but keen to allow time for applications over December.

Join BAE Systems Maritime Naval Ships team for a one week work experience placement and earn a Silver Industrial Cadet Award. Our work experience placements will take place Monday to Thursday (8.30 -15.30) for pupils aged 16 -18 at either our Scotstoun and Govan sites. Students will spend time learning about BAE System’s apprentice programmes, the business and spend time in a workshop environment creating a project that they will then be asked to do a short presentation on.

On this one week programme, students will develop their skills and experience through live face to face sessions and activities devised and delivered by our apprentices and engineers. From combat systems to environmental engineers, project managers and steelworkers, students will learn with experts in their fields, illustrating the impact they are making on the future of ship design and the wide range of career pathways open to students when they leave school.  

Students will work on an individual project and spend time with our early careers experts who will help them explore their strengths as well as school leaver opportunities. While students will have an opportunity to experience a range of BAE functions and crafts on all WEX programmes, the Scotstoun programmes will have a larger focus towards electrical, plumbing, pipe welding, sheet metal design and fabrication crafts. The Govan programme will have a larger focus towards steelwork, welding, burning and fabrication crafts.
