1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I am on an apprenticeship for Manufacturing Engineering. I spend my day working with the engineers, helping to support the build line.

I have learnt the importance of good communication within a team, and have been able to develop the way I approach situations based on the people involved.

I understand the structure my apprenticeship is based around and have never felt at any point it was disorganised. It has enabled me to self manage.

When starting the NVQ we had very little support, meaning I have had to learn as I have gone on.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


My employer is here should I need support and make time to listen to issue I may have. When I have been in need of support I have not had to wait to speak to my manager and when I have I have been reassured and advised.

I have to support myself as I no longer live at home, this means all of my wage goes on essentials. I very rarely have any money left to spend on myself. It's enough to cover the basics.

This apprenticeship leaves us employable outside of Rolls Royce.
