British Aerospace Engineering. Skilfull, lethal stuff. Bonanza job from the CV point of view and therefore much sought after. Pushing-the-boundaries in engineering and electronics plus more boring bits. Some seriously remote locations so check first and there's no sign on the website yet that they go beyond Higher Apprenticeships.
BEng. (Hons) Aerospace Engineering plus others

Awarded "Macro Employer of the Year" they are also front runners in our sinners' competition as they fail to put any details of degree apprenticeships on their website except in their recruiting period. We found a cheerful girl in HR who skilfully avoided telling us anything. Admittedly, they have multiple apprentice options but finding them is a job in itself.
The aeroplane builder: top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and therefore on hands-on skills - graduate recruits get sent to the local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor. A good employer by all accounts.
We can't add to anything that you don't already know about the services Amazon provide!
Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.
"Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis. Long term prospects: the UK CEO is a FRICS; say no more.
A British-grown world leader in microprocessor technology. A top-of-the-range opportunity, a technical degree in the core of a technical business, perfect for someone fascinated by microprocessor design. Arm and a leg stuff.
