Responding to recommendations made by the Heathrow Skills Taskforce, chaired Lord Blunkett, Heathrow’s Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye will today (Thursday 31 Jan) announce a package of commitments to ensure expansion leaves a national legacy for the airport’s local community and future infrastructure projects. The move follows an extensive two-year review by the Taskforce who have identified and recommended the best way forward for the airport’s future talent and skills strategy, taking into account the impacts Brexit may have on the industry.

The introduction of a Shared Apprenticeship Scheme will allow apprentices working at Heathrow to establish a broad range of skills and experience by working with multiple companies based or operating at the airport to complete their apprenticeship. Heathrow has committed to recruiting, training and managing apprentices across a network of companies and suppliers to help people pick and secure an exciting career, not just a job. Major construction companies including Mace, Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall, Dyer & Butler and Ferrovial, along with their respective supply chains, are set to take part in the Scheme. The strategy has been recommended by the Taskforce to help Heathrow and the wider UK build a stronger home base of skills, essential to the country’s success in a post-Brexit world.
