We Never Stop Learning
Many of our senior leaders were promoted from within our workforce. Developing our people is as important to us as delivering quality products and services to our customers. Here are some of the ways we invest in our employees’ learning and development to help them have a great career at Boeing.
Get a degree on us
Boeing’s industry-leading Learning Together Program (LTP) provides tuition assistance for Boeing teammates around the world. Through LTP, tuition and eligible expenses are paid towards select professional certifications, individual courses, certificate programs and degrees. We’ll even cover part of the cost toward obtaining your pilot’s license.
Boeing continues to invest more than $70 million annually in employee tuition assistance. Employees can choose to study at one of Boeing’s 300+ partner colleges and universities, and take classes pertaining to their current role or in an entirely different field to enhance their development.
Tuition, books and fees
Generous funding is available at all levels, including up to $25,000/year for graduate degrees, and there is no funding limit for numerous STEM programs. Tuition and eligible expenses are typically paid directly to the school, removing the financial burden for employees.
Employees have access to LTP on their hire date. They can continue to use this benefit as often as they want throughout their Boeing career.
Development opportunities are available to all teammates, from aspiring leaders, to people managers and senior executives.
Aspiring leaders can participate in a variety of rotation and development programs including Leadership NeXt (LX), a two-year experience that exposes participants to mentorship, community service, and high-impact projects that refine their abilities to inspire excellence in others.
With flexible learning opportunities managers and executives benefit from experiences that prepare them to take on increased leadership roles.
Leaders at every level can customize their own learning journeys and apply those skills to daily problem solving.
We offer a variety of self-paced virtual and in-person learning resources to help you expand your skills for your current job or acquire new skills to prepare for your next role.
On the job training and structured learning provide employees new to the company or new to their role with the support and guidance to excel.
We also offer rotational and global networking opportunities, and mentoring and coaching that guides employees through all stages of their unique career journeys.
Digital learning platforms
Our employees have access to extensive digital learning resources to build knowledge and skills across all disciplines, including programs that can be completed in as little as 10 minutes, from any location around the world. Employees can select learning pathways based on their area of interest to guide their development.
Our digital credentialing program helps employees create detailed records of designated learning and development achievements, building a rich picture of their learning journey. Badges can be shared with internal and external networks through our digital credentialing partner, Credly.
There are thousands of knowledge communities at Boeing, enabling teammates to learn from and network with the best and brightest minds in the industry. There are structured communities of practice, informal online social groups and mentoring opportunities for individualized knowledge sharing.
