Where this career can take you
The aim of the programme is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for your successful fire career.

Within 5 years, we'd expect you to be:
- Taking on increasing responsibility
- Leading engineering delivery
- Liaising with internal and external stakeholders to deliver complex engineering solutions
This will in turn facilitate your application for Chartered Engineer status.
Graduates go on to undertake engineering management roles on multi-discipline projects of national importance or to lead discipline engineering teams.
