LEVEL 3 CAT A APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING FOR BRITISH AIRWAYS

LEVEL 3 CAT A APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING FOR BRITISH AIRWAYS

British Airways (BA) have long been a significant employer of Level 3 Aviation Maintenance apprentices looking to begin their exciting journey in the Aviation industry. With a large, modern and varied fleet, BA have a concentrated and expanding demand for experienced mechanics and technicians to maintain their aircraft, now perpetuated through the industry-wide loss of experienced licensed engineers exiting the industry throughout the pandemic.

Since 2017, BA have used Resource Training Solutions (RTS) as their incumbent provider of Level 3 Aviation Maintenance Apprenticeship training, their input for the next generation of aviation maintenance engineers. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, which saw airlines grounding their fleets as demand stalled, BA continued to support their apprentices in learning and invested in the future by planning and committing to new apprentice intakes in 2020 and 2021.

As part of their 2021 apprentice intake and as the incumbent supplier, RTS were invited to tender for BA’s future apprenticeship need; an intensive and thorough competition which was ultimately, and to our delight, won by RTS.

Being a solutions business, RTS offered support to BA with their recruitment activity; the first year in which BA Engineering were involved with the shortlisting and selection of candidates. RTS again attended “Friends & Family” days to address any worries and concerns and help integrate the new BA apprentices into the business as well as providing clarity on what to expect during their time with RTS at our Cotswold Airport training facility.

The 16 students starting their Apprenticeship journey in October 2021, have begun a collaboratively designed 3-year programme developed to exactly fit BA’s operation and internal requirement. As a UK CAA and EASA Part 147 approved training business – aviation is in the DNA of RTS, the successful apprentices will be eligible to apply for both CAT A1 licences on completion of their programme.

For the new intake of apprentices who started this September, after a period of enrichment and familiarisation activities, the apprentices get straight into learning at the Cotswold Airport facility, starting Module 1 – Mathematics – where a 100% pass mark was achieved by the students, a truly fantastic result.
