Based at our purpose-built Technology Centre and at the state of the art Virgin Connect Training Academy, this programme provides the ideal progression path for students completing the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Engineering and will provide you with the theoretical and practical skills to move forward to become a licensed aircraft engineer.

On successful completion of the Foundation Degree, which also covers the knowledge requirements for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) modules, you will be able to continue your practical experience within the aircraft industry and to ultimately apply for, and gain, your EASA Part 66 B1.1 licence. As part of your programme we aim to take trips to further your learning. You will also receive the practical hand skills training expected of an aircraft maintenance technician.

How will I be taught and assessed?
The programme balances assignments and examinations in almost equal measure. You will undertake formal lectures and workshop practical training.

You could progress to…
Successful completion of the programme provides you with the knowledge and industry recognition to ultimately apply for the Civil Aviation Authority Engineers B1.1 licence examinations and after successfully completing those and the appropriate practical experience on live aircraft. This allows successful candidates to work in an EASA organisation which is recognised internationally. Previous students have secured employment within the aerospace industry. You can also progress on to the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) at Kingston University which is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society. There is a one year Full Time and a Part Time two year option available.

You could go on to careers such as…
Working in the aerospace industry with companies such as Virgin Connect, British Airways and Air Canada. The skills you will learn are also transferrable with students also able to look at careers outside aviation such as the Power and Rail Industries.
