Title of apprenticeship: Advanced Technical Apprenticeship
Year of apprenticeship: Year 2 – 2016 intake
Why did you choose / what inspired you to become an apprentice?
I have always been interested in engineering as when I was young I always liked to build models at home and when I was in year 9 I applied for the Young Apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce. When I got accepted, I was so excited as I knew it was such an amazing opportunity. I came to Rolls-Royce once a week during my GCSEs where I completed numerous sections such as turning, electronics and welding. We also completed a BTEC level 2 with Derby College. During the Young Apprenticeship, I decided to apply for the full time Advanced Technical Apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce because I had enjoyed the Young Apprenticeship so much. I had to go through a long interview process but it was worth it as I ended up getting offered the job.
