Interested in obtaining your B.Eng Engineering Degree AND working for a leading Global Automotive organisation?

Ford and the University of Greenwich are offering the final four places for school leavers to train as a graduate engineer starting September 2014 – without the tuition fees
Essex, 25th July 2013: Ford, in conjunction with leading training provider, Skillnet, and the University of Greenwich, are offering a unique opportunity to budding engineers to become a ‘Higher Apprentice’.

This first-of-its-kind training programme will not only allow Apprentices to gain on and off the job learning, but it will also allow them to study for a range of further qualifications, ultimately leading to a B.Eng degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Based at the Dunton Technical Centre, Essex, Apprentices will work alongside fully Chartered Engineers where they will learn all the key aspects of delivering a full powertrain solution. The Ford Higher Apprenticeship programme will provide practical work experience using world-class technologies, whilst incorporating knowledge of theoretical principles.

Ford are calling all school leavers who are looking to progress to graduate level education, whilst building up work experience, to apply for this exciting opportunity by Friday 9th August 2013.

“This is a genuinely innovative programme that supports the development of the next generation of engineers. We're looking for people with a passion for Engineering and the drive to become a successful employee” says Tessa Hougham, Ford of Britain Apprenticeship Manager. “This is a really exciting option because, unlike some peers who decide to go straight to university, you won’t be paying your own tuition fees, and you will be earning a salary at the same time as earning your degree.”
