What We Do
The Aviation Skills Partnership has been created to transform the approach to skills and career development in the aviation sector.
From first aspiration to CEO, we work at all levels to establish educational and skills pathways to develop people who are already working in aviation and to connect with those who wish to be a part of it.
For skills to best meet the needs of the aviation sector and for the programmes to be sustainable, they must reflect the way businesses operate. Our services include innovative Higher Apprenticeships which are designed to deliver the capabilities and knowledge needed to attract and develop the best people – and crucially they are designed in partnership with the industry.
We like to think of this as playing a leading role in an education and business revolution: where skills and economic needs sit hand in hand.
Six Career Pathways
UK Airlines, their passengers and aviation organisations need the best people. The Aviation Skills Partnership has already worked, with partners, to develop a Higher Apprenticeship in Professional Aviation Pilot Practice (HAPAPP) / BSc (Hons) Professional Aviation Pilot Practice degree and is now moving forwards with developing the Air Traffic Control area. Over time all of the below pathways will become available:
Who We Are
The Aviation Skills Partnership was founded in October 2012 by Simon Witts who has over three decades of aviation experience in top level roles. Simon leads a network of outcome focused, skilled professionals who are dedicated to the evolving skills landscape and who are determined to see it reach its full potential.
Each with a strong track record of knowledge and experience in aviation, higher education, learning and skills, the team will work with you to be both innovative and pragmatic. We have shaped a network that links up the variety of complex stakeholders in the aviation industry in a unique way to deliver the right solution for you.
We do believe the sky is the limit but we also understand the hard work that goes in to getting there.
