Welsh Secretary supports Airbus apprenticeship initiative

Stephen Crabb: "The Airbus apprenticeship information day could provide a foot in the door for a high flying career"

Airbus is calling on anyone with in interest in working in aerospace to come along to their giant A380 wing factory later this week to find out more about the early career schemes with the leading aircraft manufacturer and some of its partners.

Secretary of State Stephen Crabb said:

For people with a passion for technology, manufacturing or aerospace, the Airbus apprenticeship information day could provide a foot in the door for a high flying career.

Many people on the executive boards of Wales’ leading companies are former apprentices and the business leaders of the future are just as likely to come from the factory floor as the university lecture theatre.

I hope that people from all backgrounds and parts of Wales will seize this opportunity to get a rare insight into a hugely exciting industry.
