Ryanair’s aircraft maintenance facility at Prestwick Airport recruited three people after they completed the Performing Engineering Operations course at Ayrshire College’s custom-built Composite Materials Centre.
Running over 20 weeks, the Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) full-time course began in January with students with a range of skills and qualifications. With a strong focus on composite materials, the course was delivered to industry standards and was used by Ryanair to assess the skills and experiences of all the candidates. who in turn were offered the opportunity of an interview with the company.
In August three successful candidates, Colin Shanks, Sarah Speirs and Donovan Evans started work with Ryanair, whilst the remainder of the class will be continuing their training at Ayrshire College on National Certificate and Higher National Certificate programmes.
