Future aerospace professional invited to visit Airbus

The next generation of budding aerospace professionals are invited to visit the home of wing manufacturing for leading aircraft manufacturer Airbus on Saturday to get more information on apprenticeships.

The information drop-in session on Saturday 6th December at the Broughton factory in Flintshire is aimed at anyone considering launching a career in aerospace through Airbus’ apprenticeship programme.

Current apprentices will be on hand to share their experiences of the programme, which offers a range of skills and experience to enable apprentices to pursue careers in aerospace and engineering fields.

Head of Early Careers for Airbus in the UK, Gary Griffiths, said:

“Our apprenticeships are extremely popular and are proven to be the launch pad for very successful careers in the aerospace sector.

“The programmes cover everything from design and testing of aircraft components to supply and fitting so regardless of whether you are want to follow a management route or acquire the skills needed to build a world leading family of aircraft, there will be something for you.”

The Airbus apprenticeship programmes are:

  • Undergraduate Apprenticeship – Our Undergraduate Apprenticeship in Engineering leads to a BEng with Honours Aeronautical Engineering (Manufacture) in the third year, and combines job-related and academic training. Participants can also achieve a professional IEng level qualification along with an NVQ level 4 Extended Diploma in Engineering Leadership (the apprentice would earn around £50k during the 38 month apprenticeship).
  • Higher Supply Chain Logistics apprenticeship – Supply chain logistics support the integrated supply chains within all areas of the business. It manages the supply base of hundreds of external suppliers responsible for parts and materials consumed during the manufacture process.
  • Craft Apprenticeship – Through a Craft Apprenticeship you can become a skilled craftsman e.g. Aircraft mechanical/electrical, during the 38 month apprenticeship you would be expected to complete both academic and vocational qualifications to satisfy the framework.

The apprenticeship information event takes place on Saturday 6th December from 1330 to 1600 at the Airbus West Factory (A380 wing assembly facility), Manor Lane, Hawarden, Flintshire, CH5 3PP.

Also in attendance will be companies from the Airbus supply chain and the wider aerospace industry in the UK to provide information about their own career options.
