Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), celebrated the graduation of their aircraft engineer apprentices at an event at Monarch Aircraft Engineering’s Training Academy at London Luton Airport last week.
The four year scheme, now in its 42nd year, continues to produce high calibre engineers and this year, the nine successful apprentices achieved NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations, NVQ Level 3 in Aeronautical Engineering and EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence Category ‘A’.
The scheme helps towards the creation of jobs in the local community, and also provides an essential pipeline of skilled aircraft engineers for MAEL and the wider industry.
Commenting on this major achievement, Mick Adams, Managing Director for MAEL said:
“We are very proud to see the apprentices graduate after four years hard work where already, they have made a significant contribution to the business. From around five hundred applicants that we see each year, to have secured a position on the scheme is in itself an achievement. These now fully trained aircraft engineers are a credit to their families, those who have worked so hard to train them, and of course Monarch Aircraft Engineering where our apprenticeship scheme is industry renowned for producing the best.”
