“My apprenticeship so far has been brilliant. I was delighted to be named ‘Apprentice of the Year’ after my first year and I’m on target for a first in my university studies. It’s been hard work juggling a full-time job and a studying for a degree but the reward at the end will be worth the challenge.
We learn so much as apprentices on the job and those experiences have really helped me achieve the grades I have at university”.

“The best part of the job so far, without a doubt, is the people. Every member of staff is passionate, driven and always willing to answer questions and impart knowledge. They’re always available to offer help and you get a real sense that your development and career progression, as an apprentice, is important to them.
Combine this with the technology and experiences I’ve been exposed to so far and it really makes BAE Systems a great place to work.
To any adults thinking about applying to an apprenticeship with BAE Systems I would say: don’t hesitate, look at the apprenticeships offered by BAE Systems and apply right away”.

“What would I say to adults thinking about applying? I would say, do it! From my own personal experience I know how daunting it can be. The thought of dropping everything you’ve been working on up until this point and changing your life completely brings up all sorts of emotions and thoughts. Knowing you will be entering a pool of people who could be years younger than you can be unnerving, but with an inclusive attitude you will be surprised at what you can learn from everyone of all ages”.
