With applications still open, National Apprenticeship Week seems like a perfect time for me to remind would-be candidates to make sure they apply for the NATS engineering apprenticeship in plenty of time
More and more young people are finishing their A levels and BTEC level 3s looking for an alternative to university. Well-structured apprenticeship schemes are increasingly popular and considered as a really positive alternative for school and college leavers who already have an idea of what they want to do.
NATS now offers an advanced engineering apprenticeship scheme to reflect this change in the marketplace.
Industrial Placement schemes (IPs) are available across NATS as well as vacancies for Direct Entry Graduates (DEGs) in Engineering. Applying for such positions may seem a little daunting so we asked some of our new IPs to share some tips and first impressions.
Recently, the media has been focusing on the shortage of female engineers. Initiatives such as National Women in Engineering Day – a day dedicated to raising the profile and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering – provides an opportunity for organisations such as NATS to inspire future generations and demystify what an engineering career means in reality.
Controlling aircraft is just one part of our business. To ensure we maintain our position as a world leader in the provision of ATC services we look for the very best and talented recruits for our engineering teams.
