Work Experience

A valuable and interesting learning experience is waiting for you.

March 2022 update:
The Covid-19 pandemic had a profound effect for everyone, and particularly for the aviation, travel and tourism sector.

With that in mind, we have taken the difficult decision to pause our Work Experience Programme for the time being.
We plan to launch a brand new Work Experience Programme in September 2022 to our local schools and colleges. We will update this web page with details as soon as they are available.

Please note that our brand new, interactive education centre, AeroZone, is still available for schools and colleges to exclusively book. For more information please visit
