Assessing the role of work experience


'High quality work experience before graduation contributes to the goal of attracting, recruiting and retaining more of the most able students in engineering.' The Royal Academy of Engineering is making an assessment of this hypothesis.

A Working Group has gathered data and drawn some preliminary conclusions into a draft report. The group would be grateful for anecdotal evidence from readers of good - or bad - practice.

Company managers and mentors, students, and university staff are invited to write to me with examples.

Valerie Budd, education officer, The Royal Academy of Engineering, 29 Great Peter Street, London SW1P 3LW
