BDS Supervising Engineer Mentoring Scheme 2019/2020

The steady decline in reservoir panel engineers is a real threat to the dam industry. Encouraging and supporting the next generation of dam engineers is key to overcoming this threat. With this in mind, the British Dam Society Supervising Engineer Mentoring Scheme has been established.

The scheme will provide mentees with:
• Networking opportunities with engineering professionals outside of their organisation including All Reservoir Panel Engineers, Supervising Engineers and other trainees;
• The chance to accompany panel engineers on Statutory Inspections including those outside of their day to day discipline;
• Continued professional development opportunities;
• Guidance and support during the application process including interview practice; and
• Priority places for BDS site visits.

While the scheme is focused on training Supervising Engineers, the scheme is open to any engineers looking to develop their skills and competencies within the dam industry regardless of their level of experience.

If you are interested or would like to find out more information, please refer to the flyer here or contact and request a registration form. The deadline for the 2019/2020 mentoring intake is October 31st.
