NextGen at IT²EC

 IT²EC 2024 - defence training and technology event

The NextGen programme at IT²EC provides an invaluable and unique opportunity for the defence training and technology sector to connect with university students, graduates and cadets interested in pursuing a career within the industry.

In an environment which encourages meaningful conversations, students, cadets and early career candidates will have the opportunity to understand the defence and security sector and the career opportunities available through a series of talks and networking sessions.

We are committed to helping attract the next generation of defence and security talent – regardless of whether they choose to pursue a career in this sector or succeed elsewhere, we understand the importance of driving early interest in the sector.


We are inviting university students, graduates, and cadets to be a part of our NextGen programme on  11 April 2024. No one has a bigger role to play in shaping a secure and prosperous world of tomorrow than the next generation (NextGen) of our defence community.
