Join one of our apprenticeship schemes and you’ll earn a real wage while learning the work-ready skills to make your future career a success. We have programmes in three key business areas (Customer, Operations or Professional Services & Business support) – each of them structured to enable you to make a real contribution to our business and work towards a nationally-recognised qualification.

“The British Airways apprenticeship stands out because the support and training is tailored to ensure every apprentice can fulfil their potential.” Geetika, Head Office Apprentice

Why British Airways/IAG?

Our apprenticeships don’t just give you a job. They’re designed to properly prepare you for the world of work. With rotations through different business areas, plenty of hands-on experience and the training to carry out your role, you’ll build the professional and soft skills you need to be a valuable member of any team.

“I was on another apprenticeship and it was a lot more classroom based. I like the fact that we’re mostly in the work place. It’s a much more real experience.” James, Aircraft Maintenance Apprentice

What will it be like?

Our apprentices often talk about the variety, challenge and the chance to learn on the job. But if you put in the hard work, it’s also fun and really rewarding, with plenty of responsibility, and even the chance to raise money for charity. What’s more, you get all the benefits and rewards you’d expect from a world-renowned company – including genuine career prospects.

“Aside from career development I think the apprenticeship is really beneficial for personal development helping you grow as a person and gain skills you can carry on to any job role.” Amy, Customer Contact Apprentice
