We're working to nurture the next generation of aviators
We're working hard to nurture the next generation of aviators. We invested £170,00 in education programmes in 2019 alone! We work with a range of organisations to help us meet our employment goals and deliver the skills needed to do so.
We aim to inform, inspire, and invest in young people. Opening the world of opportunity that we offer to everyone allows us to help people to develop the right skills for the right job.
Building future skills forms part of our sustainability policy - our Second Decade of Change to 2030.
Learn Live brings the airport live to classrooms across the UK. Our accessible talks explores the range of different career paths we offer. Join over 100,000 students and teachers that have tuned in so far.
With our new STEM centre, we support and promote careers in science, technology, engineering and maths. These subjects help to form the basis of the core skills that are needed to work at our airport.
We've been offering apprenticeships for over 45 years. Our engineering apprenticeship was voted number two in the UK in 2020 and has been voted as one of the best in the South East.
We have a strong programme of community investment. We support a range of initiatives and events across Surrey, Sussex and Kent.
A strong airport supports local growth. This helps us attract new and start-up technology businesses and green industry to the area.
