British Airways and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) have jointly pledged to support the development and training of UK engineers.
The organisations will work together to fulfil their mutual interest in ensuring the sustainable growth and technological advancement of the aviation industry.
They will provide industry-leading learning for engineers looking to undertake graduate careers in the commercial airline industry.
A Letter of Intent was signed by Professor Isobel Pollock, former President of IMechE, who said in a statement: ‘It is through developing engineering skills that we will see sustainable growth in the aviation industry and the benefit of innovation.’
Keith Rose, General Manager of Quality and Training Services, said: ‘This clearly shows our commitment to the growth of talent within this sector and builds upon our accredited apprenticeship programme, which is now in its third successful year.’
