    Increasing access to education opportunities

    Education is one of the most powerful drivers of progress. At Airbus, we believe everyone is entitled to quality education, including our employees and young people worldwide. We partner with universities, schools and NGOs to increase access to education and to support programmes that inspire passion for aerospace.

    Airbus Leadership University: our global education network

    The Airbus Leadership University is a global education network that provides technical and soft skills development to our employees. Its mission is to develop our people’s leadership skills by:

    • Promoting experiential development
    • Connecting them to other Airbus leaders, entrepreneurs and start-ups, and other external leaders to encourage collaboration and open innovation
    • Providing access to a broad portfolio of development programmes, including courses, blended learning solutions, conferences, learning expeditions and more


    The University’s flagship campus is located in Toulouse, France. An additional six campuses are located close to Airbus sites around the world. And thanks to a portfolio of thousands of online programmes, the University’s reach extends to approximately 30,000 employees each year, across all functions and levels.

    Promoting employee mobility to shape the future of work

    We strongly believe a more-educated workforce is a more-empowered workforce. Our people have access to a wealth of employee development and training opportunities. Mobility is a crucial part of this. Each year, approximately 12,000 of our people changed jobs within Airbus, moving to new departments, cities or even countries.?


    By participating in employee mobility programmes, our people are empowered to:

    • Develop new skills and broaden their horizons
    • Bring fresh ideas to the company
    • Foster collaboration and embed agility into our corporate culture

    Inspiring young people to prepare for STEM careers

    Jobs related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) form the backbone of our company. They are also at the core of solving many of the societal challenges the world faces. Our international programme of quality education initiatives is designed to inspire children and young adults to explore the benefits of a STEM-related career.

    the Airbus Lycée is one of the few company owned  technical colleges in France. It trains some 300 young people each year, in four trades in the aeronautical sector. Around one hundred students graduate each year from the Airbus Lycée.

    This vocational secondary school, located in the heart of one of our Airbus plants in Toulouse, enables 350 students each year to develop manual skills in the aerospace sector.
