Apprenticeships & Work Experience

Formula One is often perceived to be an exclusive sport that lacks accesibility. Williams is trying to reverse this image by offering a range of apprenticeship, work experience and student placement programmes that are helping young people from a wide range of backgrounds enter Formula One. Williams also provides financial bursaries (for instance for PhD students at Cranfield University) and assisted with curricula development (Oxford Brookes University).

Williams is also contributing to education in Qatar in a variety of ways. This includes mentoring final year student engineering teams, running multiple summer internship programmes to expose students to a rapid engineering culture, and hiring graduates from local universities. The WTCQ has established a partnership with Silatech to promote entrepreneurship, provide mentoring and help generate job opportunities.
