8 Industrial Apprenticeship
After a period of 16 years, the new apprenticeship was started again in 2010 The model was based on one year at college followed by 2 years at BA The model didn’t work for our business for a variety of reasons: The colleges would recruit on our behalf We used 4 training providers (too complex) Varying degrees of expertise & experience at the colleges (both instructors & NVQ assessors) NVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations. Choice of approximately 70 units. The units studied at the colleges in year 1 were different leading to variations in ability The colleges used different awarding bodies, which caused confusion We didn’t have enough time or expertise to manage apprentice performance 82 in the pipeline with 113 joining We paid the colleges to deliver year 1 BA did not exploit any available Government funding 8

9 Apprentice Team Purpose
Our PURPOSE is to recruit, encourage & develop young talent to become the future Mechanic & Business support workforce for British Airways Engineering, who will demonstrate the highest standards of safety awareness, technical excellence & personal responsibility. To Inspire. To Learn. 9

13 Industrial apprentices
SEPTEMBER 2014 Lengthen to a 3 year scheme Direct entry to BA. SEMTA will advertise and perform the first two rounds of selection. BA will put 200 potential apprentices through our own selection process SEMTA will draw down the Government funding for 100 apprentices Longer, more comprehensive induction Year 1 – Rotation around the business – NVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations through day release to ONE college. Fixed term contract. At the end of year 1, we will select up to 90 to go forward for the Advanced apprenticeship. Year 2 & 3 – Place apprentices into areas for a targeted apprenticeship (quality) – NVQ level 3 in Aeronautical Engineering along with CAT A licence delivery in-house. SEMTA will pay BA to deliver the licence training. During this time, we train some of our people to become NVQ assessors Residual funding will be used to pay for the CAT A instructors in year 2&3 and apprentice development. Save approx 1 million pounds per 3 year programme, which we would have paid to colleges To Inspire. To Learn. <Footer to be positioned here> 13

14 Business Support Apprentices
18 – 20 apprentices per year NVQ level 2 in Business Administration in year 1 NVQ level 3 in Business Administration in year 2 Our training provider was charging us to deliver the qualifications No Government funding Direct entry scheme & recruitment load was a strain on resources Lack of control of student progress Communication / updates from our training provider wasn’t satisfactory No dedicated development programmes To Inspire. To Learn. 14

15 Business Support Apprentices
Change of Training Provider to, “First for Skills” Government funding drawn down by SEMTA. Majority of this to, “First 4 Skills” and the residual funding is to be used on development programmes We also save money as no payment to a training provider We have a dedicated on site programme Coordinator paid for through the Government funding to track progress and monitor target setting, removing the need for my team to track progress To Inspire.
