Training and work experience

The next generation of researchers

We believe that a "hands on" approach is the best way to learn, so we offer young people the chance to experience research work first-hand or train as a laboratory assistant or industrial mechanic.

School pupils can complete work experience placements here or take part in TheoPrax projects.

We also offer work placements and internships for students.

Show me and I'll remember.
Involve me and I'll understand.
