The University of Greenwich has given fifteen apprentices at Ford's Dunton Technical Centre a chance to study for a degree at the Medway-based School of Engineering.
Hundreds of applicants applied for the four-year programme of one-day a week study, which if successfully completed will lead to a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
Dr Stuart Ashenden, the university’s faculty operating officer for engineering and science, said: "We are delighted to be working with Ford on an innovative programme that supports the development of a new generation of engineers.
"The students will be developing their core knowledge and technologies at the university’s extensive engineering facilities and complementing this with on-the-job work experience."
