The Heathrow Employment & Skills Academy team celebrated National Apprenticeship week on the 7th March by inviting forward-thinking companies to come and hear speeches by Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye and Paula Stannett, Heathrow People Director, The Rt Hon The Lord Blunkett, and guest speakers from Morgan Sindall and Bradford Swissport.

The purpose of the event was to show employers the benefits recruiting Apprentices bring, and how upskilling their current workforce by means of Apprenticeships can increase retention and performance.

The event also gave the Academy team the platform to demonstrate the growing range of services on offer, including recruitment and development opportunities, and how employers can use the Apprenticeship levy effectively at Heathrow.
