What you’ll need
Our Degree Apprentices need to be passionate about manufacturing engineering. So, you should be analytical, motivated and, most importantly, endlessly curious about how things are made. You’ll also have to be numerate and process-focused – something you’ll have proven with an impressive set of exam results. We look for three A-Levels at A* to B in Maths and either Physics, Chemistry or Engineering, or an 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.
The beginning of our four-year programme will see you undertake foundation training at a further education college, which will give you a broad appreciation of manufacturing engineering principles. After this, you’ll be ready to embark on a series of six-month placements. You’ll undertake internal job-specific training courses over the remaining three years as well as studying for your university qualification on day-release. All of this will give you practical knowledge in areas such as introducing new products or controlling change to existing manufacturing processes, acquiring new technology and continuous improvement. You’ll learn how to manage projects and costs, how to design and validate manufacturing processes, solve engineering problems, and implement quality assurance methods.
