Rolls-Royce Hosts Future Talent
March 27, 2014: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars welcomed more than 60 schoolchildren from England and France for a look behind the scenes at the home of the super-luxury manufacturer last week.
The March CE Primary School, located on the doorstep of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood in West Sussex, hosted its partner school in St Malo, France – Ecole Privee Ste Jeanne D’Arc. The year 6 pupils, aged between 10 and 11, asked lots of questions and practised their language skills as they toured the company’s head office and viewed the manufacturing plant.
Andrew Ball, Global Corporate Communications Manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “We were delighted to welcome the schoolchildren and to give them a taste of luxury manufacturing. We were particularly pleased to note the high level of interest in engineering and hope that the schoolchildren will consider future careers in the manufacturing industry.”
Peter Edgington, Headteacher, The March CE Primary School, said, “We have an excellent relationship with Rolls-Royce and we are very grateful for the opportunity to visit the manufacturing plant. The children treated their French visitors to a quintessentially English experience, beginning with scones and cricket, visiting Bath and Stonehenge and ending on a high with a tour of Rolls-Royce.”
Rolls-Royce has a strong history in developing talent. In addition to the company’s successful Apprenticeship Programme, more than 60 men and women are employed with the company each year on industrial placements ranging in duration from six to 12 months. The company also runs a successful graduate programme, with new positions made available each year.
