On our Cost Estimating Higher Apprentice Scheme for Maritime - Submarines, you’ll learn all aspects of Cost Estimating, including the pricing of major MoD contracts.

What does the apprenticeship include?
Cost Estimating requires the combination of engineering practice, interpretation, judgement and experience in order to predict the potential cost, timing and preceding dependencies of a product or service. Working closely with our colleagues responsible for the drafting of Commercial Contracts, Cost Estimating supports the major Programmes.
We also support internal and external stakeholders involved with the estimation or communication of cost and pricing information to ensure adherence to mandated Commercial Governance processes.   
The scheme is designed to provide a broad knowledge of Cost Estimating through three to twelve month placements, over a 3 year period, across many different Cost Estimating related areas of the business.
The Cost Estimating scheme will allow Higher Apprentices the opportunity to work on real, live projects,  typical tasks will include pricing major MoD, non-competitive Submarine platform contracts, pricing competitive bid submissions for activities separate to the Submarine programmes, pricing customer change requests, indemnity and delay claims and costing internal.
