  • 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. Find out about all our Work Experience programmes

  • 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. Learn more:
