Aerospace firm Testia aims to train 1,400 in Newport

The next generation of aerospace engineers are to be trained in south Wales after a global company launched a new UK business.

EADS, which owns Airbus in Flintshire, hopes to recruit school leavers to join Testia, which will be based in Newport.

The company has already invested £1.4m in the new venture and says it hopes to be training 1,400 students a year within six years.

It plans to meet the training needs of the aerospace industry worldwide.

BBC Wales economics correspondent Sarah Dickens reports.
