This is an opportunity to build invaluable engineering skills, working alongside our experts as well as studying towards a degree. You’ll gain the kind of all-round experience that will enable you to choose where your interests lie so you can specialise when the programme comes to an end. It makes this a brilliant platform from which to launch a fulfilling career as a Rolls-Royce engineer.

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 your interests lie and what you want to do next. For example, in the future, you could be a Design Engineer, Stress Engineer, Development Engineer, a Service Engineer or a Lifecycle Engineer.

What you’ll need

You’ll have two A Levels (or equivalent) at a grade C in Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Engineering (this must include Maths or Physics or both) plus one further grade C in any subject, or, an Engineering Extended Level 3 BTEC at DDM. You’ll also need 5 GCSEs including GCSE Maths at a grade 5/B and GCSE English Language at a grade C/4 plus 3 other GCSE’s at grade C/4.

Beyond your academic achievements, we'll be looking for evidence that you're a quick thinker and problem solver, genuinely enthusiastic about developing a career in engineering. For example, we'd like to hear about an engineering project you've done at school or work, or a club you've been involved with in your spare time. You'll be keen to learn and develop and put your ideas to the test. 

What you’ll get

  • A competitive salary, starting at £13,830 per year

  • A competitive pension and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)

  • Exceptional career support from day one 

  • Support towards a BEng Honours degree
