Work Experience at East Midlands Airport

April 2023 update

Due to increasing passenger demand and operational constraints, we have made the decision to designate our work experience placements to students on our partnership programme with Derby College. Therefore, we are unable to offer students from other schools and colleges a placement at this time.

However, as there are over 90 companies based at the Airport, you may be able to secure a work experience placement with one of these on-site business partners. To enquire about a work experience placement you will need to contact them directly.

Here at East Midlands Airport, we have a varied Education programme and are committed to inspiring the next generation of airport professionals. Our popular education centre, the Aerozone, is free for school and college visits, giving students an opportunity to learn more about careers in their local airport. For more information, please direct your teacher to the Aerozone pages of our website which includes a booking form:
