Year 12

Aimed at 16 – 17 years, the Year 12 Career Conferences aim to raise the profile of the space sector; it allows the students to find out about the variety of careers in the UK space sector and related industries. Graduate trainees, post graduate students, and apprentices are regularly involved, giving students a chance to talk to people at an early stage in their careers about their career choices and working environments.

The day involves a series of talks and presentations, from various companies and/or universities within the sector, and the students get the chance to pick which speakers they would like to see most. We also provide a ‘meet the scientist’ exhibition style section to the day, where the students will get the chance to speak directly to speakers, with the opportunity to ask any question they have about the work they do, while the presenters showcase some of their specialist equipment.

These events end with a specialist keynote speaker.
