Engineering & Aircraft Maintenance

Engineering & Aircraft Maintenance

What’s it all about?

Qualified and highly skilled engineers are increasingly in demand in this exciting and rewarding industry. Our Engineering courses will focus on two key Engineering areas – Aeronautical Engineering and Operations Maintenance Engineering. If you’re looking for real-life experience and the opportunity to progress to work or further study then join the Engineering team.

What will I do?

We offer various pathways in Aeronautical and Operations Maintenance including our Pre-Apprenticeship programme. You will learn how things work and how to keep them working, using diagnostics, fault finding and maintenance procedures. You will gain knowledge of mechanical and electrical engineering principles and will develop a broad understanding of the huge possibilities within the engineering industry. As well as developing the skills to pursue a career in Engineering we will also provide you with the opportunity to gain an in depth understanding of key aviation operations that ensure the smooth running of the airport. Our strong links with employers such as Ryanair, Inflite, Tui and London Stansted Airport means you will have opportunities to gain real life work experience and benefit from their vast expertise.

What can I do next?

You can either progress on to further or higher education or apply for Apprenticeships in various sectors that could lead to careers such as an airfield engineer, aerospace engineer, maintenance technician, terminal technician or project manager. There will also be opportunities to progress to a degree top-up qualification.

Aircraft Maintenance Fitter/Technician Apprenticeship

Aircraft Maintenance Fitters/Technicians work on maintaining aircraft of all types from small aeroplanes to airliners, jet fighters and helicopters, both civil and military. They are expected to carry out approved maintenance processes to maintain the airworthiness of the aircraft. It involves highly skilled, complex and specialist work, maintaining aircraft systems according to approved requirements and work instructions, using relevant hand tools and equipment. They must comply with civil and or military regulatory and organisational requirements. They must be able to research data sources, ensuring that on completion of a task all aircraft documentation is accurately filled in.
