  • Aerospace Engineer
  • Aircraft Engineer
  • Aircraft Mechanic
Skills an apprentice will learn
  • complying with statutory, organisational, environmental, health and safety regulations
  • applying analytical methods (engineering mathematics – algebra, differentiation, function, geometry, trigonometry, statistics)
  • a wide range of technical skill sets that can be applied in a range of aerospace disciplines and contexts that could include research, development, design, procurement, logistics, planning, production, quality assurance, inspection, testing, installation, commissioning, maintenance, life cycle management, decommissioning and environmental compliance such as:
  • Planning what has to be done, when and by whom
  • Ensuring that resources are available and capable of achieving the required outcomes.
  • Allocating and deploying resources in a timely manner
  • Completing/project managing work ouputs/programmes to the required specification
  • Monitoring programmes of work and report progress to appropriate personnel.
  • Agreeing any amendments to work specification/work requirements
  • Ensuring that quality assurance requirements are adhered to
  • Retaining and storing documentation and records for traceability
  • Monitoring: The regular checking of specific aerospace engineering activities or outcomes to ensure that they are being achieved according to requirements. Monitoring includes observation, data collection, sampling, and can be continuous, periodic, on demand, random, scheduled, formal and informal.
  • Resources: The available means to undertake processes and achieve aerospace work outcomes. Resources include equipment, facilities, finance, material, people, information/data, and are obtained from customers, suppliers, or from within their own organisation.
  • Specifications: are precise technical descriptions of the characteristics of an Aerospace engineered product or Aerospace engineered process such as performance, function, quality, materials, aesthetics, life cycle, technologies, performance/capability, delivery schedule, interfacing, environmental/sustainability, branding, safety, budget, volume, timing.
