This structured Degree Apprenticeship will give successful candidates the opportunity to study for a BEng (Hons) degree in Mechanical Engineering whilst working on exciting and stimulating work placements. What will I do? In Year 1, your time will be split between studying for a degree and working within Renishaw, gaining valuable experience within a manufacturing and assembly environment. During this year, you will spend some time at our manufacturing facility in Stonehouse, Stroud. You will learn here, how mechanical components are machined and processed into finished parts, understanding essential aspects of the processes. You will also spend some time at our assembly facility in Woodchester, Stroud where many of our products are assembled. You will learn about our range of assembly equipment and processes, getting real hands-on experience assembling our products and learning valuable lessons in assembly equipment design and operation. Your training during this first year will give

you a broad level of exposure to our manufacturing and assembling process which will give you fundamental practical knowledge and skills required for your apprenticeship. Years 2 and 3 will include dedicated placements within the mechanical engineering groups across Renishaw, allowing you to work on real projects and products. Studying continues with the degree on a part time basis, allowing your theoretical knowledge to continue to grow. In years 4 and 5 you will be placed within a team allowing you to specialise in a specific field of your knowledge within the company, finally completing your studies with a BEng and taking up an appointment within Renishaw. You will be based at our New Mills site near Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. During the apprenticeship, you may be required to work at other Gloucestershire sites, as well as our Miskin plant in South Wales. What qualifications will I gain? You will study towards a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering, accredited by the

University of the West of England (UWE), with two days a week being spent studying for the first year, thereafter on a day release scheme. The degree is split into two levels, a Foundation Degree followed by the BEng (top up), which you will work towards over a 5-year period. This allows each apprentice to build on their qualifications and provides defined milestones within the apprenticeship. There will be ongoing reviews with the teams from UWE and Renishaw. What are the entry requirements? * Either three A-Levels at BBB, or 120 UCAS points, including Maths (at grade B or higher), one other science subject and one other STEM subject, * OR a Level 3 Engineering Technician Apprenticeship at Distinction level. * Other qualifications will be considered if they meet the points level requirement. * Preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate practical exposure to mechanical engineering. * Good written and excellent communication skills. * A

genuine desire to become an exceptional engineer. * A full UK driving licence, as travel to college and other sites will be required. Application and recruitment process: 1.
