A Cotswold company is partnering with SGS Berkeley Green University Technical College (UTC) to encourage the next generation of engineers.

ZeroAvia will be offering students at the UTC work-based projects, mentoring, work experience and apprenticeships at its R&D facility, based at Cotswold Airport near Cirencester.

The partnership between ZeroAvia and the UTC will help build the skills locally, which will be needed for the future.

As its expands its training and apprenticeship schemes, ZeroAvia looks forward to offering young people from Cirencester and beyond the opportunity to get their start in a career tackling one of the toughest challenges for the net zero transition.
