Vocational training is a worldwide unique system and for us is one of the essential success factors of Airbus as it secures the supply of highly-qualified young employees in the long term. It is our mission to encourage self-responsibility and engagement. Airbus will invest in enhancing the image and improving the quality of apprenticeships by creating the best framework conditions so that our apprentices and dual students can not only develop professionally but also personally through a variety of workshops and practical assignments in business units in order to develop the junior staff of the future.

Aviation is our passion! We are proud of our products and achievements which is why an apprenticeship is not only about getting to know the training profession but also about gaining knowledge and skills in the field of aviation.

We are promoting diversity and we are convinced that diversity is also essential for the success of Airbus which is why we want to encourage young people to work for our company regardless of nationality, gender, handicap and ethnical origin.
