Babcock announces graduation of BAE Systems' admin staff
Building on a successful long-term partnership for the provision of engineering training, Babcock is now providing Business Administration training and qualifications to BAE Systems' administrative staff and today announced that the first cohort of BAE apprentices, based in Portsmouth, have completed their Business Administration qualifications at both Levels 2 and 3.
Clare Brill, the VLA who oversaw the project, said: “BAE had very specific requirements and we needed to try and get the apprentices through within less than the allocated timescale of 10 – 14 months. We managed to do this through designing a very time-efficient training delivery system, with intensive classroom sessions. This meant that apprentices gained the same skills and knowledge as those on a longer programme, at a very high standard, but through very concentrated learning delivery, made possible by BAE and Babcock working closely to create efficiencies. Kim Watt VLM explained, “VLAs Claire Brill, Jo Wright and Jo Shackleton did an outstanding job in delivering the programme. Claire has now been promoted to VLM.”
It is hoped that a second cohort of BAE Business Administration apprentices will enrol in the near future.
