An opportunity for buddying engineers and those interested in the aerospace sector is being made available for all students between the ages of 14-19 years old in Burnley and Padiham.
Organised by the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world, Airbus is giving students the chance to attend a virtual work experience which provides an understanding of the exciting world of aerospace and the career opportunities that it could lead to.
Antony Higginbotham MP who has highlighted the opportunity said:
I'm determined to see our younger generations benefit from our fantastic local aerospace sector. We’re home to some of the most advanced sites within the world and apprenticeships are vital to building on that.
This program is also about encouraging youngsters into STEM subjects which we know leads to high skilled, high paid work.
That’s why I’m encouraging all students, and their parents, who have an interest in this field to take a look apply online.
The Airbus Virtual Work Experience will take place from 4th - 15th July with anybody able to apply. Registrations close on 29 June.
