Careers and development support from Hinkley Point C
Our education and skills programmes
HPC Inspire: for up to 16s
HPC Inspire is Hinkley Point C’s education programme for teachers and educators in the South West region. We provide curriculum and Gatsby Benchmarks-linked support through learning and careers resources, assemblies, workshops, careers insight programmes and films.
Young HPC is our skills and development programme to fast-track young people onto the project. We provide exclusive access to events with employers. Free development courses to help young people reach their potential. And careers tools, support and advice.
The HPC Jobs Service is the place to go to find job vacancies on the Hinkley Point C project. Students can register for free to receive alerts on different jobs. And the team are happy to give advice about roles on the project or the skills employers are looking for.
Apprenticeships are a core part of our workforce at Hinkley Point C. We aim to create 1,000 apprenticeships during construction alone. It’s a great way to start your career, learn a skill for life and earn a good salary.
When you apply for a job, it’s not just your grades that future employers are interested in. They’ll also be looking for evidence of other more subtle qualities too, which determine your attitude to work and how you’ll fit in with their company.
Start is a free and comprehensive digital platform, offering schools and colleges a single starting point to help simplify and improve careers guidance in schools. Explore our profile to find out more about the project, our education programmes, the roles that are available and much more.

This project-based activity for young people challenges them to help their community reach Net Zero. It’s an opportunity for young people to tackle climate change where they live. And it supports educators in meeting their curriculum and careers goals.
