Gatwick has started using the ‘Learn Live’ streaming platform to broadcast information to students thinking about pursuing a career at the airport.
The Learn Live channel enables the airport to broadcast monthly interactive video links to schools, giving students an opportunity to ask questions directly to staff.
Each session will cover a different theme and introduce students to the different careers Gatwick offers.
The broadcasts are recorded so the sessions can be extended to other year groups not able to take part in the live sessions.
Gatwick is also introducing a series of ‘Back to the Floor’ sessions with senior members of staff revisiting their apprenticeship roots as part of National Apprenticeship Week which runs until Friday.
Chief executive, Stewart Wingate, head of engineering Tony Yates, and operations development lead Helen Cowper all began their careers as engineering apprentices and are each being paired with one of Gatwick’s current apprentices to perform a series of engineering based tasks together across the airport.
The airport’s head of community engagement, Alison Addy, said: “Gatwick has a well-established apprenticeship programme and the Learn Live technology not only enables us to continue investing in local communities but also helps to shape our future workforce by inspiring young people to think about apprenticeships and careers at the airport, as was the case with our senior leaders who are taking part in our ‘Back to the Floor’ initiative.”
