Training and skills

The airport’s own academy is a dedicated employment and education facility for adults. Working alongside Stephenson College and Jobcentre Plus, it supports people into employment. Job seekers who feel they would benefit from more training and support before applying for jobs can discuss their needs with tutors who will be on hand during the jobs fair.
