Joining an Airbus Apprenticeship programme could be the ideal start to your career, just as it has been for many of our Senior
Managers today. Our Apprentices receive second to none training, gaining the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to
enable you to make an immediate contribution when you enter the workforce.
An Airbus Craft Apprenticeship offers you the opportunity to gain qualifications with no fees, whilst acquiring new skills through
vocational training, and a regular salary.
On the Mechanical and Electrical Wind Tunnel Apprenticeship at Airbus you will gain a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma
(Aeronautical Engineering) and a NVQ Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering.
On completion of our 39 month programme you will become a skilled Wind Tunnel Technician with Electrical and Mechanical
Apprentices on this programme study at City of Bristol College to achieve their qualifications, and their industry based work
takes place at our Wind Tunnel facility at our Airbus site in Filton, Bristol.

Your first year on this Craft Apprenticeship programme will predominantly be spent at college to achieve the Level 2 Foundation
course; learning about engineering operations, and achieving a number of technical certificates and company required
Once the foundation phase is complete, our Craft Apprentices divide their time between college and the Airbus Wind Tunnel
facility to work alongside our skilled Wind Tunnel Technicians. During your industry based work at Airbus you'll learn a range of
different skills and methods including Electrical and Mechanical fitting, Machining, Hand finishing and 3D printing, to enable you
to complete your level 3 vocational qualification.

In order to be eligible for this apprenticeship candidates must have a minimum of:
- Six GCSEs at Grade C or 4, which must include Maths, English Language and Science (either core and additional/double
award, or physics).
- We can consider other qualifications such as Engineering BTEC Level 2, Engineering Diploma, Principle Learning, PEO Level
2 and Pathways to Apprenticeships as two GCSEs. Alternative qualifications must be in addition to the core GCSE subjects
stated above.
Please note that you must also include a cover letter as part of your application for this programme which demonstrates your
interest in aerospace and motivation to join the apprenticeship programme.
