Aviation Skills Partnership and University of South Wales to launch new degree framework

Aviation Skills Partnership has announced a new university partner in developing degree programmes from its framework – University of South Wales.

ASP’s new framework, announced at MRO Europe, has been developed as a progression from its work on a similar scheme for professional pilots. According to ASP, it has been developed in close collaboration with the industry and the training organisations, airlines, operators and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organisations.

More details of the programme will be announced in the coming weeks.

Dr Rhobert Lewis, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science at University of South Wales, said, “This agreement is an important first step in developing what promises to be an exciting collaboration between the industry and one of the UK’s major universities.  This is a natural match between a university founded by industry, for industry, and one of the leading new players in the aviation sector.

“The partnership between Aviation Skills and the University of South Wales has the potential to make a real difference to the education and training of professionals within the aviation industry. We are delighted to be working together on exciting projects of such importance.”


The first students are expected to enrol on the scheme from September 2016 and more details, including information advice and guidance for budding engineers can be found at aviationskillspartnership.com, or www.southwales.ac.uk.
