Apprenticeship Schemes

Apprenticeship Schemes

Apprenticeships provide a great opportunity for people of all educational backgrounds to either get into the world of work, or to make a career change.

You will benefit from gaining experience working in a professional environment, alongside formal training, meaning you can earn a salary while you learn. Your professional qualification can range from Level 2 to Level 7 which is equivalent to a Master’s degree.

Apprenticeships offer the ‘hands on’ chance to learn doing real work in the industry, and you can connect with experts in the field and grow your professional network.

Our apprenticeships offer a unique prospect of working in a busy and growing aviation business. All this means that our apprentices can get the very best out their careers while helping our group’s success through continued innovation. MAG offers many different apprenticeships. These are made available in due course depending on the individual scheme.
