About this programme
On this three-year programme, you’ll work alongside, and learn from some incredibly talented engineers. Every day, you’ll develop your skills on real aircraft, in a real job. Over a series of rotations, you’ll work on all our aircraft fleets, gaining the knowhow to help keep them in perfect working order. You’re going to be busy. Alongside comprehensive on-the-job training, you’ll be studying towards the qualifications you need to become one of our future Aircraft Engineers.
You’ll need the confidence to communicate with people at all levels, and the common sense to act on your own initiative. It can be high-pressure work in an ever-changing business. You’ll need the flexibility to adapt to different demands, while always putting safety first. As you’ll be a valued part of the team, your input will be welcome on everything from process to practice.
Please note, that the initial induction to the business for this Apprenticeship will take place at our London Heathrow base. For the remainder of the first year of this Apprenticeship you will then be based off-site and living away from home.
