What you need to know about the Highfield Level 2 End-Point Assessment for Aviation Ground Operative
Who is this Standard for?
An aviation ground operative could work in a number of environments, such as a commercial airport, military base/aerodrome, heliport or other airfield. Aviation ground operators form the teams above and below wing to ensure the efficient and effective arrival, turnaround and departure of aircraft. At the heart of the role is safety, security and compliance with aviation regulations that focus on each operator’s day to day duties. Effective communication and team work ensure that Aircraft Handling, air traffic control (ATC) and those moving, loading, unloading and servicing a range of aircraft achieve the objectives of their organisation in this diverse field.
This is a level 2 apprenticeship standard that has a minimum duration of 12 months.
Apprentices who started their apprenticeship on or after 14/04/2016 will be assessed against ST0037/AP02.
