National Apprenticeship Week with BAE Systems

Want to know more about the exciting apprenticeship opportunities at BAE Systems?

This broadcast focuses on Lucas and Grace’s journey as apprentices and why they chose an apprenticeship instead of continuing in full time education. The theme for this broadcast was focused on the apprentice experience to inspire students in school and college to look at this route into the workplace.

The live chat is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave us a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the team from BAE Systems.

The Panel

Grace Handley

Advanced Engineering Apprentice, BAE Systems

Every day I come into BAE Systems, my work does not feel like just a job; I am given the chance to face evolving challenges, protect lives and produce meaningful results, and I don’t believe I could get that feeling at any other company. The Aerospace Engineer Degree Apprenticeship is extremely varied; I have worked in offices, hangars, labs etc. in different placements. The majority of my current role is office based as Aerospace Engineering consists of a lot of problem solving; this can include looking on databases to check numbers/functions/maintenance manuals, completing some maths or physics problems yourself or networking with others to find the solutions to the issues. It is very team based, so it is extremely rare you will be working on a problem yourself; this allows you to work to everyone’s strengths when devising a solution. From time to time you have the opportunity to travel, including to UK RAF bases or even internationally to meet with customers or partners.

Lucas Benson

Advanced Engineering Apprentice, BAE Systems

My Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship with BAE Systems has made my dreams turn to reality and allowed me to develop my skills further than I ever imagined. It has enabled me to achieve a level 3 NVQ and HNC in Aeronautical Engineering and given me the aspiration to complete a Higher National Diploma. My apprenticeship has given me a variety of experiences from the design and implementation of manufacturing cost-saving ideas within the company, helping those less fortunate than me through working with the Princes Trust and the design, manufacture and testing of a rehabilitation device currently being implemented into Birmingham Hospital. I have had a role to play as a fitter on cutting-edge aircraft programmes such as Typhoon, F-35 and Hawk alongside some of the greatest engineers in the field. I am now part of the team responsible for developing the technologies, tools and processes that are going to be used to manufacture combat aircraft of the future
