The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Apprenticeship Programme provides 16-24 year olds with the opportunity to learn and develop skills at the Home of the world’s leading luxury manufacturer. The apprenticeships last for up to four years and allow successful candidates to build a career by completing college courses that are nationally recognised, alongside on-the-job training at Rolls‑Royce Motor Cars.
