2020 Degree Apprenticeship

Arm is looking for degree apprentices to join our engineering teams based in the UK.

A Degree Apprenticeship provides a way to access higher education while gaining valuable experience in the workplace. The apprenticeship with Arm will comprise both paid work and study, allowing the apprentice to earn while undertaking study. The apprentice would work towards a three year BSc or BEng Honours degree in Computer Science or Electronic Engineering funded by ARM in partnership with Essex University.  Your on-the-job learning would be supported by a dedicated mentor at ARM and academic support from the University. You would be working with the latest ARM technology, on a variety of exciting projects during the duration of the apprenticeship.

Our apprenticeship program is designed to meet the relevant Degree (Level 6) Apprenticeship Standards. The program is expected to take four and half years to complete, including a period of work and training after graduation. The apprenticeship will be completed by passing an external assessment. The apprenticeship will commence in Autumn 2018.  Apprenticeship positions are available in a number of different teams within ARM across our software engineering groups.
