Advanced Apprenticeship in Intelligence Analysis (Int An) at RAF Apprenticeships

Course description

An apprenticeship in the RAF offers you the chance to gain a UK-recognised trade qualification as part of a challenging and unique career. Not only will you gain a civilian recognised professional qualification, but upon completion you’ll also have a guaranteed job in your chosen field.

We offer all kinds of apprenticeships in a broad and diverse range of careers including aviation operations, engineering, hospitality & catering and IT. You’ll receive the very best training and accelerated pay, and as well as getting paid to learn, you’ll get the chance to travel the world, play sport and perform an important role in the RAF.

If you have the drive and ambition, we can offer you a unique and rewarding career. To gain an apprenticeship in the RAF you still need to meet all of the entry requirements for whichever role it is for and get through all stages of the application process. You will gain the apprenticeship as part of your phase two (trade) training.

The Intelligence Analyst Apprenticeship scheme came into place in 2013 and offers Phase 2 trainees the chance to gain a civilian recognised qualification based on evidence gathered in trade training and then during their first posting. Qualified assessors and verifiers work with the apprentices, assessing work and offering guidance and advice along the way, ensuring full support is given to them in order to achieve their Intermediate Apprenticeship in Intelligence Analysis, a skill used daily throughout their RAF careers. The vast majority of learners find the training invaluable especially as it allows an incremental pay rise as well as a recognised civilian qualification.
