What skills and experience we're looking for

Our aviation course will be focusing initially on training future aircraft engineers, ground dispatchers and pilots from age 16 and, through partners, continue their training through and including higher education until employment in the industry in the roles that they have been trained for. Space roles are also being added to the Pathways for each area as the new space industry grows and the need for space engineers, spaceport dispatchers and astronauts grows.

Trainers will be a blend of industry professionals, trainers, teachers and mentors. Due to the way that the courses have been designed to embed industry training into educational training programmes and the way that the courses introduce live industry training on relevant and modern industry aircraft and equipment, individuals will need to be able to cover all angles of training and teaching.
