AST Job Shadowing Programme
Overview
The Aviation & Space technology job shadowing programme gives learners exposure and an opportunity to explore careers in the aviation and the space technology industry and any other STEAM- related careers. This programme is designed to give each learner an all-around experience, equipping them to make an informed decision regarding their career path. Careers covered in the programme may include Pilots (Drones, Military, Police, Corporate) Information technology, Aircraft maintenance engineer (AME), Air traffic controller (ATC), Engineering (Aeronautical, Mechanical,
Aerospace) and other STEAM-related fields.
THE GOALS

  • Learners to have an opportunity to observe an employee performing their daily work routine in their environment. It allows them to explore specific careers and to get a realistic picture of the tasks performed for that job. This will allow the learners to make an informed decision about their career of choice.
  • Expose learners to scholarship opportunities in their field of interest. This can also help learners show scholarship providers or companies that they are serious about a career in that field.
The Programme
We have job shadow programmes throughout the year. Each programme runs for five days, and we place 2 to 5 learners in our partner aviation or space technology company. The programme is supported by workshops throughout the year.
