The programme:

Join our Engineering Degree Apprenticeship programme and, while you're working towards a bachelor's degree, you'll also be getting valuable real-world experience. By the time you finish, you'll have achieved your degree and you'll be ready, on a practical level, to start taking your career development to the next level.

What you'll do:

All the way through your degree apprenticeship, you'll be working alongside exceptional engineering professionals. You'll gain a firm foundation in engineering principles, before going on to placements in different areas of the company. These generally last four months each, which allows you to develop a real understanding of what working in that area means.

We recruit Engineering Degree Apprentices into a number of different areas. In all of them, you'll enjoy on-and-off-the-job training and outstanding opportunities to progress. Once you've completed your apprenticeship, you'll have a good idea of where you want to focus. For example, you could be a Design Engineer, Stress Engineer, Development Engineer, a Service Engineer or a Lifecycle Engineer.
