What types of apprenticeships are there in Aerospace?

As most aerospace companies actually manufacture and build components for aircrafts and space rockets it would be safe to say that the majority of the apprenticeships on offer will revolve around manufacturing.

Once aircrafts are built they are then handed over to the owner which in most cases will be commercial airline companies such as British Airways, Emirates or Virgin Atlantic who will be responsible for the on going maintenance of the aircrafts and also recruit large numbers of apprentices each year to help maintain their aircrafts.

The hot spot areas for apprenticeships in the Aerospace industry in the UK are the South West, as Airbus is located in Bristol but they do have other locations in the UK such as Broughton and Hertfordshire, and the East Midlands. The types of apprenticeships on offer in the aerospace industry varies for employers to employer: 

  • Manufacturing
  • Maintenance
  • Engineering
  • CNC Machinists
  • Assembly Technicians
  • Software Engineers
  • Design Technicians
