BAE apprentices start their time at Fairfield Heritage

Monday, 27th August 2018

 

This week 60 new apprentices started at BAE Systems and on their second day they came to Fairfield Heritage to learn about shipbuilding history as they start on a path to create the future. Julie McCluskey, Education Partnerships Advisor of BAE Systems Naval Ships said “A tour of Fairfield Heritage is a great way to show our new apprentices the history and changes in the shipbuilding industry. It’s a fantastic way to set the scene for them embarking on their new careers! Pride and Passion is key in our apprenticeship programme and Fairfield’s helps us begin to instill both of these values”

Between the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the heyday of shipbuilding on the Clyde, Govan was at the centre of the industry.

Whatever your age or experience we can offer a range of learning opportunities. From education groups to community visits.

We are looking for volunteers. To find out more about the huge variety of opportunities to support us, go to Get Involved in the Heritage site.

Once described as the jewel in the crown of Govan, the restored building provides a magnificent venue for all for all kinds of events.
