Teacher Take Off Days

British Airways will be hosting ‘Teacher Take Off Days’, inviting teachers for a day of work experience across the airline. Teachers will spend a day gaining an insight into a chosen area of our airline, providing information about how that area of the operation works, as well as having the opportunity to shadow colleagues. The information gained from the day enables teachers to bring this back to the classroom and incorporate into the curriculum, providing students with real-life working examples of topics they are learning in the classroom.

We have a variety of Teacher Take Off Days available, including Operations, Engineering and Customer teams in London, Wales and Glasgow. You can register by clicking the apply button and searching for the roles prefixed with ‘Teacher Take Off Day’
