Apprentice Designers will learn to work with Engineers to develop and design Submarines from initial concept through to build over three and a half years. What does the apprenticeship include? The role of a Designer is broken down into three disciplines – Electrical, Mechanical and Hull.  These work together with the Engineers to develop and design Submarines from initial concept right through to build.   The main duties will include the design, CAD modelling and drawing of all aspects of Submarine design.  Some of the main areas of work include External and Internal Steelwork, Electrical Systems, Hydraulic and Pneumatic Mechanical Piping Systems and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC).   All work is carried out using the two CAD systems (CADDS5 on the Astute programme and FORAN on Successor) currently employed within the business.   This is a 3½ year apprenticeship, the first year is spent full time at Furness College, here you will learn the basic skills of using hand tools and machinery together with the Health and Safety requirements in the work place, and you will also start your Level 3 Academic Studies (currently National Diploma).   During your first year you will be introduced to each of the three Designer disciplines to enable you to make an informed choice on your preferred direction, however, final allocation will be dependent upon the business needs at the time.   From the second year you will be introduced to the company and begin a series of designer departmental placements, each lasting approximately 4 months, in addition to this you’ll also spend time on Designer related placements which last approximately 6 weeks.  During this time you will start to learn about the structure of the company and will be given an insight into the world of Shipbuilding and Engineering.   You will continue with the final year of your National Diploma studies at Furness College before potentially progressing to studying for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in your discipline (i.e. Electrical or Mechanical – Mechanical and Hull Designers enrol for Mechanical).  As you progress in the company and develop your skills you will be working towards a Level 3 NVQ Extended Diploma in Engineering and Technical Support, proving competence in your chosen discipline.   A typical apprenticeship for this opportunity starts with an exciting two weeks induction, and a week Outward Bound in the Lake District, getting to know other apprentices and the business.     You’ll be joining Submarines - this is the part of BAE Systems that has been tasked with turning Britain’s future defence ambitions into reality.  We’re the people who are building the next generation of submarines for the Royal Navy. What is the salary? Competitive starting salary, currently £9,200 rising during the scheme to £19,977 in your final year. What qualifications will I get? You will be supported to obtain a Level 3 Engineering Design & Draughtsperson Level 3 qualification throughout the duration of your apprenticeship. What are the entry requirements? To apply for a Designer you’ll require five GCSEs grade A*-C/ 4-9 (or equivalent) including Maths, English and Science/technical subject.   Applicants will also be expected to be medically fit as deemed necessary to perform the role, be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance.
