Rolls-Royce apprenticeship program seeks worthy candidates

Have you dreamed of driving a Rolls-Royce? That isn't likely to happen my friend. However have you ever thought about building one? Rolls-Royce, which builds the finest ultra luxury vehicles in the world, has announced it is seeking candidates for its Apprenticeship Program.

The Rolls-Royce Apprentice Program is for the plant located in Goodwod, UK. The apprenticeships begin at the end of August 2012. Apprentices will find themselves working among some of the most skilled craftspeople in the world. Different departments and categories included leather, wood, paint, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and assembly roles.

Rolls-Royce Apprenticeship Program was successfully launched back in 2006. The program provides young people aged 16-24 with the opportunity to train with Rolls-Royce, building the world’s best-selling ultra-luxury cars. Sine the program's inception 30 young people have secured jobs after successfully completing the apprenticeship. Last year the program was extended to include not just manufacturing but business as well. The first business apprentice was recruited recently.

The length of apprenticeship varies depending on what area a candidate chooses, but they usually last for up to four years and combine on-the-job training with studying for nationally recognized qualifications in Britain. The program was designed in conjunction with the Learning Skills Council (LSC).
