The CPD event calendar is full of opportunities for you to polish your leadership skills
You can enhance your skills and your professional development through a wide range of lectures, events and CPD accredited training courses.
Engineers Ireland also runs a number of initiatives at primary and post-primary level through its STEPS programme. This also involves attending numerous events throughout the year. You can really make a difference in a young person’s life by telling him/her about your experiences. In particular if you are just starting out on your professional career this volunteer opportunity affords you a chance to hone your presentation and communication skills, essential tools for any professional.
No one will know more about the experience of studying engineering and entering the career than you so this is a real opportunity to practice keeping an audience entertained while informed on engineering content.
