British Airways Engineering Technical Apprenticeship
Engineering Technical Apprenticeship / Engineering Apprenticeships
The Technical Apprenticeship is a three-year programme run in conjunction with one of our four partner colleges, Brooklands, Farnborough, Kingston or Uxbridge, with the aim of delivering up to 120 apprentices per year.
The first year will be spent full-time at college gaining both practical and theoretical skills related to aircraft maintenance that are required to become an aircraft engineer. During this first year you will be required to study for a PEO – Performing Engineering Operations (level 2 qualification), functional skills and possibly a subsidiary diploma in engineering (level 3 qualification). You will also have four weeks of work experience at Heathrow, some of which will be during the college holidays. During the year you will have contact with engineering training instructors on a regular basis. There will also be a liaison officer from within the British Airways Engineering training department aligned to each college who will monitor and address any issues from the programme.

At the end of the first year students will be required to apply to British Airways for a placement and go through an interview process. Successful candidates will be able to complete years two and three of the apprenticeship with British Airways on a paid 2-year, fixed-term contract based at Heathrow Airport.

In years 2 and 3 you will work for four days a week gaining invaluable experience in the work place on live aircraft and gaining first hand experience of aircraft systems and component overhaul and testing. You will then attend your partner college on a day-release basis for the fifth day. A college placement advisor will also visit you on a regular basis to in the workplace to discuss your progress.

When at college during years 2 & 3 you will be required to study for a City & Guilds 2661 (level 3 qualification) which provides a strong grounding for any future aircraft engineering licence programmes (A, B1/B2 and C). On completion of the apprenticeship you may be offered a full-time contract as a mechanic subject to the appropriate selection process.

All applications for the British Airways Engineering Technical Apprenticeship are to be submitted directly to the college.
