A huge US company, with power engineering and a lot of other serious engineering businesses in the UK. Very strong on management development. We know they have a degree apprenticeship in "Electronic and Computer Engineering" - UWE, who do the training, celebrate it - but there is no trace of it on the GE website. It appears to be a Batchelor's degree only: you'd want to know that GE would support you to continue to Master's level, required for full membership of engineering professional institutes.

GE says that it "is building a digital company inside an industrial company" but there's no sign of any Digital & Technology degree on their website. In fact there is no sign of any degree apprenticeship despite their offering to guide us towards a new career with them.

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.
