MAEL Engineering Apprentice Scheme
Monarch Aircraft Engineering has been delivering high quality apprenticeship training since 1971, producing over 750 high calibre engineers for the business and wider aviation industry. In order to continue strengthening our position and support growth opportunities within base maintenance and support departments, we are once again proud to announce the launch of our successful apprenticeship scheme for 2018/19.
Brief Posting Description:
Our apprenticeship programme is an amazing opportunity to gain hands-on experience mixing theoretical with practical training, both on and off-site, working towards gaining an EASA Part 66 A-license qualification at the end of the 4 year programme. Successful candidates will complete a course of training to obtain work related experience and qualifications to ensure that they are able to carry out the role of an aircraft maintenance engineer competently and effectively within a pre-determined time frame.
As one of our Engineering Apprentices, you’ll be a valued asset to our team, earning a real wage while being trained to the highest standards in Aircraft Maintenance. Our 4 year apprenticeship will be delivered to the NEW Trailblazer apprenticeship standards and specifically the EASA Licence Category A pathway.
All successful applicants will be initially based at our Engineering Training Academy at London Luton Airport where they will commence theoretical and practical training towards completion of the Level 2 Foundation phase.
Upon achievement of the Level 2 phase, applicants will then progress onto the Level 3 Development phase. The Level 3 phase will be carried out in one of our aircraft facilities which will provide the applicants with practical “On-Job” training on either aircraft mechanical/avionic systems. Applicants will also work alongside highly skilled mentors who are prepared to pass on their knowledge and experience.
Whilst this apprenticeship is mainly practical based, applicants will also receive training in order to obtain the required levels of technical knowledge and understanding. This will be achieved by way of studying towards the 12 theoretical modules that make up the EASA Part-66 ‘A’ basic licence category.
Applicants will also complete any of the remaining elements that go towards an End Point Assessment and subsequent certification.
Minimum entry level requirements for applicants are to have or be expected to achieve 3 GCSEs at grade A* to C or Grade 4 to 9 (or equivalent), which will include Maths, English, Science.
If successful in your application you will be required to attend an extended period of time of training at our Engineering Training Academy in Luton, Bedfordshire. This period of time, along with additional information, will be confirmed at the interview stage of the application process.
