Experiencing a career in engineering

The Worshipful Company of Fuellers, which supports the energy industry, incorporating coal, oil, nuclear, gas, electricity and renewable energy is partnering with The Smallpeice Trust to give students the opportunity to experience a career in engineering. The Smallpeice Trust is a charity set up 50 years ago to give young people, especially girls, the role models and experiences to fuel their passion for engineering. With two million more engineers needed by 2025, it is vital to ensure more students from all backgrounds get to meet industry role models and experience the real world of today’s engineering. The heavily subsidised courses range from single day events at your school to three-day residential courses at one of the Trust’s partner sites; including companies such as BAE Systems, Nuclear Grads, Siemens Mobility and SubSea UK. Students can also embark on our Arkwright Engineering Scholarship to guide them into a successful career.
