On this Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll get to study for a bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline 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. And it provides you with the perfect platform to go on to even bigger challenges.
What you’ll do
As well as comprehensive on-and-off-the-job training and a competitive salary, our Engineering Degree Apprenticeship will give you the experience you need to become a vital part of our future. You'll be exposed to elements of the engineering lifecycle on a number of placements, so you'll get to experience everything from design and prototyping through to test. It's an opportunity to play your own part in creating ever-better solutions – in the design phase, for example, you could contribute to conceptual designs that solve problems at a product system or component level. We’ll make sure you have plenty of exposure as your placements teach you what it means to be an engineer. You can expect to work in one of our sectors as you deliver projects in state-of-the-art environments and learn from some of the most brilliant engineers in the world.
What you’ll get
- A competitive salary starting from £12,657 a year
- A competitive pension, and 33 days’ holiday per year (inclusive of Bank Holidays)
- Career support from day one
- A debt-free bachelor’s degree
What you’ll need
You’ll need to be passionate about engineering. So you should be analytical, highly motivated and, most importantly, curious about how things work. You’ll also be a real team player, and be able to prove it. Beyond that, we’ll want to see numeracy, drive and the ability to learn quickly – all things you’ll have shown through your impressive exam results. We look for A-Levels at A* to C in Maths and either Physics, Chemistry or Engineering plus another subject. Don’t worry if you don’t have A-Levels, we also accept SQA HNDs and HNCs, Scottish Highers or relevant engineering-focused Level 3 extended BTEC.
Our high-performance, integrated power solutions are at the cutting edge of technology. From powering huge commercial vessels to nuclear submarines, supersonic fighter jets to highly efficient passenger planes, or rail locomotives to luxury yachts, we go above and beyond to create better. And it’s all thanks to our people. Whether they work in engineering or finance, manufacturing or project management, our 50,000-strong team work together to deliver excellence in the air, on land and at sea – to customers in 150 nations around the world.
Trusted to deliver excellence.
We recruit, select and develop our people on merit, irrespective of their race, colour, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or any other characteristic.
To start with, our four-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 placements that will give you practical and technical knowledge in a range of different areas. At the same time, you’ll study towards vocational engineering qualifications and for a bachelor’s degree.
