APPRENTICES from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars have met Matthew Hancock, minister of state for Skills and Enterprise.

The company’s apprenticeship programme was launched in 2006 and provides people aged 16 to 24 years old with the opportunity to train with the Goodwood manufacturer.

The apprenticeships last for up to four years and combine on-the-job training with studying for nationally recognised qualifications.

Frank Ludwig, director of manufacturing for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: ‘Our apprenticeship programme delivers future talent for Rolls-Royce and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the development and training of young people in the UK manufacturing industry.’

In January the company also announced a recruitment programme for 100 new permanent jobs.
