The JCB Academy Apprenticeship Programme is based over two sites in Rocester.

The first site is within The JCB Academy, a carefully adapted and renovated mill, which (appropriately) was built by the famous industrial entrepreneur and engineer, Richard Arkwright, in the late 18th century.

The second site is based a short walk away at the former Dove First School in Rocester. This £1.2m conversion was officially opened by Lord Bamford in 2017 and is equipped with cutting edge technology to enable learners to undertake project using computer aided design and mechatronics.
