Thoroughly committed to apprenticeships in general, with degree apprenticeships in mechanical and electrical engineering (helicopters based in Somerset), and design and software engineering for electronic defence systems (based in Edinburgh - Strathclyde University). Helicopter degree apprentices work through HNC and HND at Yeovil College, and then rise to BEng at Plymouth University; those in Edinburgh study at Strathclyde University.
