Training and development
Employees are given plenty of opportunities to progress through specialist training, regular reviews and tailored career paths. Each year, around 190,000 hours are spent on activities aimed at maximising skills and knowledge with programmes covering everything from IT to leadership, languages to intercultural awareness.
We have a core set of competencies that define the requirements of every Airbus position. This helps managers when they need to recruit or plan someone’s next steps, and clarifies what is expected of each employee.
The Airbus Key Competencies (AKCs) include composites design and manufacture, architecture, manufacturing engineering and supply chain management. Hundreds of actions have been put in place ranging from new training programmes and career paths, to state-of-the-art knowledge management and expertise transfer solutions. In fact, 40% of all training hours are spent on AKCs.
