The programme features key industry interviews and news-style reports along with editorial profiles.

Rolls-Royce have long been a pioneer of innovation, with more than 60 years of nuclear expertise, supported and strengthened by our passionate and enthusiastic apprentices and graduates. Creating and maintaining this pipeline of talent is crucial to UK defence, alongside providing jobs and opportunities for individuals across the UK and more locally in the East Midlands. Which is why Rolls-Royce opened a new Nuclear Skills Academy to 200 apprentices in September.

Filming for the programme took place across Rolls-Royce sites, including the newly opened Nuclear Skills Academy, shining a light on the talent we currently have in our apprentice and graduate programmes and encouraging the next generation of talent to look forward to a career in the nuclear industry.

Olivia Maltby, Project Engineer, has just finished our Project Management apprenticeship and said: “I decided to retrain, and applied for the project management apprenticeship scheme at the age of 22. Here I am four years later with a full-time role as a project engineer within the submarines business.”

The programme emphasises the importance of the work done at Rolls-Royce Submarines, powering the UK’s nuclear underwater defences, and helping the Royal Navy to protect UK shores through the full lifecycle support of the submarines. At the heart of this is the enthusiasm and passion that comes through from our apprentices and graduates as they begin their careers and gather the vital, hands-on experience that working and learning at Rolls-Royce provides.

With the maintenance of the UK’s continuous at sea deterrent at the forefront of our minds, it’s important that Rolls-Royce continues to nurture the UK’s STEM talents and provide them with the education and industry experience to really make them shine.

One person who knows this first-hand is former apprentice and now Director of Engineering and Technology, Lee Warren: “Working in the UK Nuclear Submarines Business is absolutely fantastic. I wouldn’t be here 33 years later, still in the same project if it wasn’t exciting every single day.”
