“For a student like me who was looking to gain real-life experience, ScottishPower’s YINI programme was an excellent opportunity. I got the chance to work on challenging projects under the supervision of experienced professionals. The management and my teammates helped me a lot to get settled into a professional environment which, as a student, was new to me. I was provided with enough training and challenges which helped me to improve my soft skills as well as my technical skills. It has been a year of improving my confidence and being inspired by my colleagues.
I am privileged to be part of this diverse organisation which gives people the opportunity to learn, grow and to showcase their skills. I would definitely recommend joining this programme.”
Lauren McIntyre, Social Projects & Sector Education, Year In Industry Programme
“I was offered a place on the Year In Industry Programme after interviewing for a Graduate Intern role. I have learned and developed so much since starting the role in September, and would highly recommend anyone do it before, during, or after University. The Year In Industry Programme continues to provide me with the experience I was struggling to find after graduating.”
