We welcomed 35 Engineering Apprentices who are starting their career with us in January 2020, at an ‘in touch’ day at the Global Learning Academy. Sixteen of the group are former Thomas Cook Apprentices continuing their learning journey at BA. We’re privileged to be able to support them to achieve their A licence and Engineering Apprenticeship.
The 19 direct-entry Apprentices will start an intensive three-year course as part of the journey to becoming qualified Aircraft Engineers. This begins with a foundation qualification Level 2 Diploma in Aerospace and Aviation Engineering delivered off-site, working towards A license modules. In years two and three, they will gain experience in various areas of Engineering while completing the Advanced Apprenticeship.
The ‘in touch’ day was an opportunity for the Apprentices and their family members to engage with us, ask questions and understand our vision. They also met some of our current Apprentices, who shared their own knowledge and experience.
To celebrate 100 years of flying, we created a flight to remember for our colleagues. Flying from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur, two of our flights were operated solely by Cabin Crew who are family members or have a long family history with British Airways.

We’re looking to inspire the next generation of pilots by providing hundreds of flying lessons for young people in 2020. Taking the controls of a mini-British Airways aircraft for a 60-minute lesson, students will experience the thrill of flying and see what life in the cockpit is really like! This ground-breaking initiative aims to show how a career as a pilot is accessible and achievable for every young person in the UK.

In celebration of National Work Experience month, British Airways has opened its hangar doors to give 200 students a glimpse into the complex world of aircraft engineering. During two open evening events at the airline’s engineering base at Heathrow, young people aged 14 to 18 were taken on a tour of the largest airline engineering base in the UK.

Rachel is one of our many engineers and is keen to encourage more to join the field. After a little over a year, she decided to swap her cabin crew uniform for overalls. She now supports the night team that ensures our aircraft are ready to fly on time each morning. Find out how to join today: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMiXE
We’re celebrating winning a hat trick at the UK’s leading apprenticeship awards.
Our apprentices voted us one of the top employers in the country – and two of our current students won individual awards for their outstanding achievements.
At last night’s Rate My Apprenticeship Awards ceremony in London, Heathrow Operations Agent Shannon Mitchell won the Outstanding Intermediate Apprentice (Level 2) award. And T3 Lead Customer Service Representative Abigail Roberts scooped the Outstanding Advanced Apprentice (Level 3) gong.
This is the first year we have been involved in the awards, and we also triumphed in the Employer Awards category. Based entirely on our students’ ratings of their experiences with us, we won a place in the top 100, entering the table at number 58.
The Employer Awards recognise and reward excellence amongst employers who offer apprenticeships and school leaver opportunities across the UK.
We're delighted that customers have voted British Airways staff as the best in Europe at the Skytrax 2019 World Airline Awards.
The award recognises our staff for their friendliness and efficiency, highlighting the consistent excellent service delivered by airport and on-board customer service teams.
Alex Cruz, Chairman and CEO of British Airways, said: “Customers are at the heart of everything we do, and we’re delighted that the hard work and dedication of our colleagues has been recognised with this award. We know that our colleagues make us who we are as an airline, and in our centenary year, we’re incredibly proud of this achievement.”
