Airbus has 450 apprentices in the UK so we are delighted to sponsor the Bristol and Bath Apprenticeship Awards awards, which celebrate the future of apprenticeship and employment in our region.
It’s also a great opportunity to celebrate the young talent that exists in our region and, as a champion of UK innovation and skills in the South West, we are very proud to recognise their achievements.
Airbus offers high-quality apprenticeships and this is a great opportunity for us to promote the opportunities available to current and future school leavers. These awards highlight the good work that surrounds apprenticeships and the dedication of everyone involved.
Apprenticeships are now seen as a very real alternative to the traditional university route for young people to get a degree whilst earning as well.
Airbus builds on a proud 100-year British heritage, designing and assembling the wings for our commercial aircraft in the UK. We are a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services with a 15,000-strong British workforce and a UK turnover close to £6 billion, making Airbus a major contributor to the UK economy.
