Specialist Science Apprenticeship

Think applying physics, chemistry, engineering and maths to real-world engineering takes a degree-level education? You'd be right – and that's exactly what you'll get as a Specialist Science Apprentice, only without the need to attend university. After just one year of this three-and-a-half-year scheme, you'll have the potential to earn a BSc (Hons) degree – with the possibility of gaining a Masters once you complete your apprenticeship.

Dividing your time between offices and some of the world's premier laboratories, you'll learn to blend theory with practical skill. You might be helping to develop new chemical processes, inspecting parts using x-ray and ultrasound, or enhancing your forensic analytical skills to help us manufacture for future success – wherever in the world our products are used. 

You'll be exposed to all parts of our business: civil aerospace, defence aerospace and marine. Trained by world-class experts to join the next generation of scientists, you could be involved in areas as varied as inspection, metallurgy, materials science, failure investigation, chemical processing, coatings, research and development, forging and mathematical modelling.

Put simply, our Special Science Apprenticeships are as diverse as the opportunities they could lead to.
