Plenty of challenges
This is a chance to learn from the best, so your first big challenge will be making it on to one of our highly competitive programmes. Once you do, you’ll learn every single day, both in the classroom and at work. Ultimately, you’ll be part of teams that are solving problems, hitting deadlines and delivering excellence every step of the way.
You won't just be working towards your qualification, you'll be building opportunities for the future. Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll have the chance to meet lots of people and build your professional network. These people will be invaluable when it comes to planning your future career.
During your second and third years, you’ll get to experience a number of different areas within your business. So whether you’re based in civil aerospace, nuclear, defence or marine, you’ll get amazing exposure to real-life working situations.
Places you could work
Depending on the programme you apply to and the business you join, you could be based at any one of our sites, including our state-of-the-art Apprenticeship Academy in Derby. We have teams all over the UK, in places like Barnoldswick, Bristol, Hucknall, Inchinnan, Dounreay and Washington.
Support to grow
As well as supporting you in all the obvious ways, like making sure you get first-class tutoring and mentoring, we also offer less obvious ones.
As well as our tailored Outward Bound training programme, we also run an Education Awareness training programme. This prepares you to give something back to our local communities by inspiring young people to get excited about science and engineering, and where it could take them in future.
You’ll also have the chance to get involved in painting local community centres or creating gardens for the elderly. So not only do you get a lot from life at Rolls-Royce, we also give you the chance to give back.
On top of that, we offer Driver Awareness training, which is designed to help you become a safer driver. And then there’s our Financial Awareness training, which equips you with the skills to manage your money well and shows you how great the rewards with us can be if you're prepared to work hard.
Finally, we offer a Developing Personal Integrity programme, which is a practical workshop designed to teach you more about yourself and how you work. You’ll cover areas like motivation, resilience, confidence and communication skills, and learn what makes you behave in certain ways. More than that, you’ll discover how to, boost your strengths and manage yourself and your emotions.
