In France

The highly technical nature of the aerospace industry has created huge demand for skilled and qualified specialists.

Obtain certified professional qualification

In France, apprenticeships are available at Airbus, Airbus Helicopters and Airbus Defence and Space.

In one of our apprenticeship programmes, you will work alongside experienced employees, gaining invaluable insights into a wide range of vocations. We are looking for candidates to work in production, engineering and business management.

Apprenticeships in France can also take the form of a Contrat de Professionnalisation scheme, which enables the apprentice to obtain certified professional qualification through a programme that combines theory and on-the-job training. Apprenticeships last from one to three years.

Learn in our own training college

At our site in Toulouse, apprentices attend our vocational training college, Lycée Airbus. We also have partnerships with vocational colleges in Nantes, St. Nazaire and Toulouse. Open to students of all nationalities, the Lycée Airbus teaches a French curriculum. You must be enrolled at one of our partner colleges to qualify for an apprenticeship with Airbus in France.
