in the world. Turning our designs into reality, you’ll learn from engineers, customers, suppliers and operations specialists. Join us and you’ll be shaping the future, surrounded by experts who’ll help to inspire, challenge and support you to be yourself and at your best.

What you’ll do

You'll start by completing foundation training at our Apprentice Academy in Derby or a local further education college near your site, which will give you a broad understanding of manufacturing engineering principles. After this, you’ll be ready to embark on a series of six-month placements. You’ll complete 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, controlling change and continuously improving existing manufacturing processes, acquiring new technology, implementing digital manufacturing solutions and interfacing with suppliers. You’ll learn how to manage projects and costs, how to design and validate manufacturing processes, solve engineering problems, and implement quality assurance methods.

What you'll need

Plus minimum 112 UCAS points which must include Maths A-level at grade B or above, plus one other A-level in either Physics, Engineering or STEM related subject and one other A-level at grade C or above in any subject or an Extended BTEC Level 3 in an appropriate discipline but must also include Maths A-level at grade B. Obtained or predicted.

Creativity and an agile approach are both important. But above all, you'll need to be passionate about manufacturing engineering, as well as analytical, highly motivated, and most importantly, endlessly curious about how things are made and processes work.
