Anyone with an interest in working in the aerospace industry is invited to Coleg Cambria’s, Deeside Campus in Connah’s Quay on Thursday (21 January) to find out more about craft apprenticeships with leading aircraft manufacturer Airbus. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The open evening is a chance to get more information on craft apprenticeships, with the deadline for applications on 12 February. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Apprentices already working for Airbus in the UK will be on hand to share their experience, along with representatives from Airbus and from Coleg Cambria. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There will also be presentations by Airbus’s Early Careers Programmes Manager – Gavin Jones and Coleg Cambria’s Head of Engineering – Nick Tyson. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Craft apprenticeships are a good way to start a career which leads on to skilled aircraft fitter roles in either structures, systems or plant services. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Mark Stewart, Airbus General Manager and HR Director said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The aerospace sector in the UK supports more than 100,000 jobs, and high skilled manufacturing is the life blood of the Broughton plant. These apprenticeships give individuals the opportunity to work in the largest aerospace industry in Europe as well as learning practical and academic skills.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Airbus in the UK has taken on more than 500 apprentices over the last five years, and many of those who completed their programmes use the opportunity of working for a global company to work in one of our facilities overseas. In addition, around 70 per cent of the senior management team at the Broughton plant in north Wales began their careers as apprentices. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The event runs from 5pm – 7pm on Thursday, 21 January at Coleg Cambria, Kelsterton Rd, Connah’s Quay, Deeside, Clwyd CH5 4BR. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
