TUI UK & Ireland will deliver more than 2,000 new apprenticeships by 2020. Apart from classical qualifications, new training schemes to become, for instance, an aircraft engineer or IT specialist will also be offered. The Luton-based business is rolling out opportunities across its head office as well as its 600-strong retail estate across the UK.
TUI UK & Ireland has also committed to developing a new kind of apprenticeship scheme for pilots – an industry first. Working in collaboration with the Industry Skills Board, the new scheme will see changes to the funding system. As a result, becoming a pilot will be a more accessible career option for many.
“Offering 2,000 more apprenticeships – adding to the 5,500 we have trained in the last 15 years – is testament to our commitment to providing fantastic careers in our growing business. Working for TUI can open up a world of opportunities and we pride ourselves on providing our people with quality training and development, both nationally and internationally,” said Caroline Kitcher, HR Director TUI UK & Ireland.
