AVP partner with University of South Wales

Published: Sunday, 08 November 2015   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Aviation Skills Partnership (ASP) have announced they will be partnering with the University of South Wales to develop a new framework for degree programmes. 

With the University of South Wales being the largest university in the country and well-known for its original aviation and aerospace engineering programmes, it will now provide students with a new degree programme, designed with the skills the industry require at the centre of it. 

An exciting collaboration

ASP’s new framework, which was originally announced at this year’s Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Europe event, has been developed as a pioneering scheme to train talented pilots before they join the sector. 

The degrees have been developed in collaboration with the industry itself, along with a number of quality training organisations, operators and airlines. 

This new partnership will pave the way for innovative programmes to be further developed and launched at the University for students to enjoy. 

Dr Rhobert Lewis, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science at the University of South Wales, commented that this collaboration is a huge first step to the development of what promises to be a fantastic partnership. 

An exciting time for all

It is a “natural match” between the South Wales university and ASP, he added.

Dr Lewis explained that this partnership also has the potential to make a huge difference to the training and education available for professionals hoping to join the aviation industry. 

The university is delighted to be working with ASP on such exciting new projects, he concluded. 

Simon Witts, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at ASP, said they are proud to be working alongside the University of South Wales.

ASP also look forward to announcing the very first degree scheme, enabling youngsters to “access one of the most attractive routes” to train to join the aviation sector, he added.

The first students expected to enrol on this degree course will be from September 2016.
