SpiceJet's One-Year Apprenticeship Programme: Here Are The Details

SpiceJet chairman and managing director Ajay Singh in an interview with NDTV Profit on Thursday announced an apprenticeship programme under Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME). The one-year programme, Mr Singh said, will train young engineers who graduate from 70 or 80 AME schools across the country. Currently, we found that there is a big gap between education and skills while interviewing students from the AME schools in the country, SpiceJet chief further said. Also, a monthly stipend will be paid to the apprentices and then SpiceJet will offer jobs at the end of the programme, he added.

With an aim to fill the gap between education and skills, the SpiceJet programme will include three months of classroom work and nine months of practical training. From this one-year programme to improve skills, we are hoping the students to play a meaningful role in the airline, Mr Singh stated.
