BAE Systems Australia advances the next generation

BAE Systems Australia has partnered with the Hunter River High School for the Commonwealth Government’s Pathways in Technology (P-Tech) pilot program that will help propel Hunter students into future aerospace careers.

 

BAE Systems is one of four companies (including Jetstar, Varley Group and Amp Control) that has partnered with the school.

 

The program expands the Company’s involvement with Regional Development Australia – Hunter and local schools to ensure students leave school with the necessary skills to join the local aerospace and defence industry.

 

Over 50 year 11 and 12 students will undertake aeroskills studies in four Hunter schools in 2018. Their studies will be complemented by work experience at BAE Systems Williamtown, where the RAAF’s Lead-In Fighter Hawk jet aircraft is currently maintained.

 

BAE Systems Australia Aerospace Director Steve Drury said:

“We have secured long-term work at Williamtown supporting Australia’s national F-35 fleet. This means that students who have grown up and studied locally can now target a long-term aerospace career in the region.”
