BRENTWOOD, UNITED KINGDOM – June 20, 2013: Ford has announced a new four-year Higher Apprenticeship programme to encourage a new generation of engineers into the automotive industry.

A Ford Higher Apprenticeship in Product Development Engineering includes a degree-level qualification, and offers high-quality training in a range of engineering skills. It provides the opportunity to learn and earn at the same time.

The degree-level apprenticeships are provided in conjunction with the University of Greenwich. They provide an alternative route to a degree over the traditional university path, which offers employers a skilled resource while enabling work experience to be combined with further study.

Tessa Hougham, apprenticeship manager, Ford of Britain, said: “We are delighted to be offering a Higher Apprenticeship Programme at Ford Motor Company. What is unique about Higher Apprenticeships is the blended approach to learning and working, which enables direct application and reinforcement of new skills.

“Every participant will develop in-depth technical knowledge and obtain a degree whilst performing work based assignments that add value to our business.”
