ECCI links up with CareerWISE to provide work placements for women in SET

31 January 2014

ECCI is joining up with the CareerWISE Work Placement scheme for Women in Science, Engineering and Tech for the first time this year.

Currently only 13% of the SET workforce are women

Science, engineering and technology (SET) are vital to Scotland’s future yet many women are not entering these sectors. Currently only 13% of the SET workforce are women. 

CareerWISE aims to encourage more girls and women to consider SET careers through the provision of information on SET career opportunities and the route into these sectors through work experience and work placements aimed at school pupils and students currently at college or university.

If you are interested in offering a placement or would like further information regarding CareerWISE please get in touch on 0131 455 2267 or email Joanna at
