On the Rolls-Royce Manufacturing Engineering Higher Apprenticeship, you get to study towards an engineering foundation degree and work alongside world-class engineers, all while making a real contribution to an advanced engineering business. It's a great way to earn, learn and grow in confidence as part of a supportive team.

Our Manufacturing Engineers are amongst the best in their field. To develop some of the most advanced manufacturing processes in the world, they have to be. They work across aerospace, marine and nuclear technology, and you'll join them in one of those businesses. Turning our designs into reality, you'll learn from designers, customers, suppliers and operations specialists in every part of Rolls-Royce around the globe, so you'll enjoy plenty of exposure as you gain the experience you need to become a vital part of our future. All while taking advantage of on and off the job training, a competitive salary and amazing opportunities to grow your career.

To start, our three year programme will see you undertake foundation training, which will give you a broad appreciation of engineering principles. From here you'll be ready to embark on a series of three month placements. These will give you practical knowledge in areas such as product introduction, capability acquisition and continuous improvement. You'll learn how to manage projects and costs, and also how to evaluate engineering designs, solve engineering problems, and implement quality assurance methods.
