4-8 March 2019 is National Apprenticeship Week which celebrates the impact of apprentices on individuals, employers and the economy.

The UK’s Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space industries are at the forefront of providing high quality training and development. Companies in these sectors provide thousands of apprenticeships every year, offering routes into exciting and high-tech, high-skill, high-wage careers. These apprentices make a valuable contribution to manufacturing, with many of them working on world-leading technologies.

This week we will be featuring a range of apprentices from across our industry:


George, Reaction Engines

Daisy, BAE Systems


Tom, Reaction Engines

Nicola, BAE Systems


Sarah, Thales

Ahmed, BAE Systems


Billie, BAE Systems

Callum, Reaction Engines
