Graduate Technical Development Programme

The Technical Development Programme aims to increase your technical ability throughout your two years on the programme. This will then allow you to successfully enter a key technical role in the business following completion of your graduate programme.

This route offers an excellent opportunity to access extensive technical training opportunities via external training courses and on the job training. There is also the opportunity to develop your soft skills along the way. This is the route for you if you have a keen interest in taking on a technical role post-graduation and wish to consolidate the skills you have learned at university and develop them even further. You will learn from experienced people within the business by working with them on key projects throughout your time on the programme.
