As an integral part of our graduate training programme, we run an annual Graduate Academy, which offers graduates a springboard into their first year of technical work, and adds direction and context to their initial steps in the industry.
AREVA RMC’s Graduate Academy runs every year over a period of four or five consecutive days at Aston University’s campus in Birmingham. With a wealth of technical knowledge and hands-on industry experience, our own in-house experts introduce graduates to the UK nuclear industry, its history, current practices and regulations, alongside pragmatic tutoring in business skills and client interaction.
Designed as a kick-start to a graduate career in nuclear, the Academy gives graduates a taste of the industry today, and what our company has to offer. We aim to foster the next generation of nuclear consultants, initiating a thirst for knowledge and a keen eye for business and client satisfaction.
