Airbus and Rolls Royce are leading the industry in developing and supporting a new Higher Level Apprenticeship programme. This scheme bridges the gap between traditional vocational and academic routes and allows apprentices to receive a BEng(Hons), plus Incorporated Engineer status, through a three-year work-based learning programme.

Join us for early evening drinks and canapés aboard the SS Great Britain to celebrate our aerospace engineering heritage in Bristol, and learn how your company can benefit from the new Higher Level Apprenticeship programme.

Tour the technical centre where the BLOODHOUND SSC land speed record car is being built, and get an opportunity to add your name to the fin.
