About our apprenticeship programmes 

We have a wide range of apprenticeships across different business areas. Our programmes are designed for those who have, or are about to, complete GCSE’s (or equivalent) onwards; spanning areas such as Engineering, Business and Finance from intermediate to degree level. 

Earn and learn 

As an apprentice, you’ll gain valuable work experience, develop skills and be supported in your study towards professional qualifications – all whilst earning a salary. 

Our employee networks, your team and your mentors will help you to develop connections and experience a fulfilling career. There are also plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in volunteering, so you’ll be encouraged to make a difference outside of work too. 

Your future 

Apprentices are our future, so we invest in yours. We recognise the vital part they play in our success, so you’ll be encouraged to bring your unique perspective and showcase your ideas right from the start. Many of our colleagues began their career as an apprentice, and each one of your team will be passionate about guiding you on your own journey. 

At BAE Systems, we’re not just proud of what we do, we’re proud of how we do it. So when you join us, you’ll be part of an inclusive culture that’s committed to working to the highest ethical and environmental standards, making a positive contribution to the countries and communities in which we operate.

Women in Craft Engineering @ BAE Systems – Apprenticeship Insight Event

About the event

 Our apprenticeship insight event will introduce you to the exciting world of craft engineering; providing you with the opportunity to learn more about our company, gain hands on experience and visit our sites. You’ll also get to meet our current craft engineering apprentices, who will provide insights into their role and share their experience.

Taking place over 4 days throughout January & February 2022, places on the programme are limited. The Women in Craft Engineering programme is aimed primarily at female candidates seeking insight into a career in a Craft/Workshop environment. All applications will be reviewed, and you will receive an outcome decision via email by 17 December 2021. Following the insight experience, you could be offered a full time position on our Advanced Craft Engineering Apprenticeship, starting in autumn 2022.
