In line with the UK Government's developing guidance for the Covid-19 pandemic, at BAE Systems we have been reviewing our 2020 education outreach activity.
To help protect the health and wellbeing of everyone as much as possible, we have decided to suspend all our education outreach including our schools roadshow programme and work experience placements. We are sorry to have disappointing news but our teams will continue to monitor this unprecedented situation and we will resume our education outreach when it is safe to do so.
We have, therefore, concluded that it is in the best interests of everyone to cancel the 2020 Engineering Taster Week Programme.
We thank you for your interest in the programme and apologise for the disappointing news.
Engineering Taster Week Team
BAE Systems at Warton Unit
Warton unit, in the North West of England, is composed of two sites within our Air sector. Warton site houses a large range of systems integration, final assembly and flight test facilities for products including Typhoon and Hawk aircraft. Specialist test facilities include a comprehensive range of hot gas and systems laboratories, wind tunnels and electronic warfare facilities.
Samlesbury is the latest expansion of the Air sector, specialising in F-35 design, manufacture and support, whilst also hosting the new ASK (Academy for Skills Knowledge), a cutting edge educational facility for the training and development of both early careers and experienced.
The Engineering Taster Week's are organised entirely by undergraduate engineering placement students, taking time out from university to work for us on a year-long industrial placement scheme. The undergraduates will be your first point of contact during the taster week. Throughout the week, there will be many opportunities to discuss with them (and other BAE Systems personnel) about their career choices and engineering experiences.
