We have joined forces with the Royal Air Force and a raft of other top aerospace industry firms to open a Career College based at our Lincoln Campus.

Lincoln College’s Air & Defence Career College provides employer-led, career focused education and technical training for 16 to 19-year-olds.

Our employer supporters will work closely with us to provide this unique and innovative model, which is designed to create secure career paths in the RAF, aerospace and catering industries for young people.

Launched in September 2016, at our Lincoln Campus, we have seen our students progress into exciting careers in the RAF, Anglian Water, Mercedes Benz, ITP Engineering and Minebea Engineering. In 2018 we anticipate the number of enrolled students to be 100. 

Our carefully designed study programmes, which have been shaped by our industry partners, offer a unique blend of academic education and technical training, infused with an additional focus on leadership, communication and team building.

Our students will get involved with industry-set projects, co-designed by employers - equipping them to enter their career of choice, ahead of the game and ready to progress.

Career College students will spend a significant proportion of time experiencing industry environments first-hand through an extensive programme of work experience. And industry experts will join their tutors at College to pass on their knowledge and experience.

Core academic study areas like Maths, English and Science will be contextualised to the specialism of the Career College, digital skills development will be a major priority.
