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


I am training to become an engine fitter, I do 2 weeks of workshop work and then a week of college etc. The skills I have managed to learn so far are: hand fitting, electrical, dressing aircraft engines and turning. After my apprenticeship I will have a level 3 NVQ and a level 3 BTEC both in aeronautical engineering.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


Yes I have had chance to learn a lot of new skills

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy the programme because it is good to learn new things however the college side of things is very full on with lots of assignments and not enough time to do them. The qualifications that we do could be more structured to what our job role will be as the BTEC contains a lot of topics which aren't used on a shop floor fitter role.

4. How valued do you feel by Rolls-Royce?


valued enough, no complaints

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


Not very well organised apprentices seem to have to organise things that should be done higher up however it is well structured, you always know where you're meant to be.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?



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


Not enough

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


Very well
