Wood & Lacquer Level 3 Apprenticeship - Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

The BMW Group UK has been recognised as being one of the ‘Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2019-2020’ and the Rolls Royce Motor Cars plant, specifically, runs one of the South East's largest apprenticeship schemes. Not only are there a number benefits such pension, generous holiday allowance and a car scheme for over 18s, but all apprentices completing their programme to date, have been offered full time employment. Now that’s compelling…

As a Rolls-Royce Wood and Lacquer Apprentice, you will be based in Goodwood, West Sussex at the Home of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, where you will gain a general appreciation of the wood and lacquering process through on-the-job training coupled with day release at Chichester College. You’ll learn from some of the finest craftspeople in the business and apply your skills to do a number of projects.

This program will give you an in-depth introduction to the range of wood and lacquering operations involved in the production of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. You'll spend three years developing your skills by working your way around the departments within the Wood Shop, as well as earning a Level 3 NVQ in Modern Manufacturing and technical qualifications in Wood and Lacquering from Chichester College.

Your final year will be in a specific area of expertise in preparation for your post-apprenticeship role. So all in all, this opportunity gives you hands-on work experience with one of the most prestige automotive brands, plus a Level 3 qualification: the perfect combination.

And this is just the start of your journey with Rolls Royce Motor Cars. An apprenticeship can offer many career options and enable you to make the most of your potential. To date, 100% of apprentices successfully completing the programme have been offered full time employment at the end of their studies.


Benefits include pension scheme, BMW car scheme eligible to those 18 years and over, generous holiday allowance, a subsidised on-site restaurant and discounts at various local businesses and restaurants.
