Rolls-Royce Higher Apprenticeships



Here is the theory. Engineers go to university, get a degree then start their career. We say think differently. Join our Higher Apprenticeship scheme and while you are working towards a graduate-level education, you will also be getting invaluable real-world experience. By the time you finish the scheme, you will have achieved at least a Foundation degree and be ready practically to start taking your development way beyond that.


All the way through your Higher Apprenticeship, you will be working alongside real engineering professionals. You will get a firm foundation in engineering principles, before going on to mentored placements in different areas of the company, typically lasting four months each.


Working across everything from civil engineering to defence services, you will enjoy on and off-the-job training, a competitive salary and opportunities to progress within our Engineering function. Roles available in this area include Technician, Technologist and Design/Stress Engineer. How far you go in any of these is up to you and your ambitions.


Rolls-Royce is a global company, providing integrated power solutions for customers in the civil and defence aerospace and marine markets. It's the perfect place to launch your big thoughts, ambitions and aspirations. You could soon be on your way to a challenging and rewarding career that?s full of potential.
