Meet our apprentices.
The more you learn the more responsibility you are given, meaning there’s always room to improve, learn and progress.
Now, as an Engineering Technician apprentice at MINI Plant Swindon, I can continue my education and study for my degree, while also gaining a valuable work experience from a world-renowned car manufacturer.
All my colleagues here at Oxford have been really welcoming and friendly, and everyone is keen to share and pass on whatever knowledge and expertise they can.
Networking with colleagues in the Oxford and Swindon plants, as well as those further away in Europe, has really improved my confidence and communication skills, something I always struggled with in school and college.
BMW Group are really supportive of all their apprentices. Everyone understands that, as apprentices, we’re here to learn. But you’re always treated – and trusted – like any other member of the team.
I’ve always loved cars; from when I chose my GCSEs, all I wanted to do was work in the motor industry.
