One area that we perhaps did not explore enough in series one is the first steps that young people take into industry either through the degree route, apprenticeships or other employment with training. As the very purpose of these podcasts is to inspire, energise and help create the workforce of the future, it seems natural to explore the journey of some young people as they take their first tentative steps into work and a carefully chosen career. With this in mind, in this episode, I was delighted to be in conversation with Hannah Keating. When we recorded this a short while ago, Hannah was a couple of days away from stepping into a graduate trainee site engineer role with Laing O'Rourke. Hannah describes her journey through school and how she balanced a time-hungry love of sport with her studies both at school and as she completed her Master's Degree at Swansea University.  How a visit to an HS2 site with her uncle sparked a flame to want to be involved in "creating something good and worthwhile" through civil engineering, and how working in a bike shop and an Irish pub, surrounded by male colleagues has prepared her to confidently step into the still male-dominated position of a site engineer.   So pull up a chair, plug in the earbuds and enjoy Designed for Life in conversation with site engineer Hannah Keating. This podcast has been recorded with the help of our sponsors, The Edge Foundation https://www.edge.co.uk/ inspiring the education system to give all young people across the UK the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to flourish in their future life and work, and PTC Onshape Providing industry-standard cloud-based CAD to education  https://www.ptc.com/en/news/2020/ptc-onshape-education-enterprise-plan-available-free-of-chargeWe are indebted to both The Edge and PTC Onshape for their continued support.
