New Apprentice Training Facility Opened at London Luton Airport
Resource Group is delighted to announce that we have opened a new regional hub for apprentice training at London Luton airport.
The project involved a £55k investment to create a large classroom for up to 26 students and an extensively refurbished practical training workshop.
The first group of apprentices were welcomed to the faclity on 3rd October 2022, and today we celebrated the launch with an event attended by some of our apprenticeship clients including, TUI, easyJet, DHL and Harrods Aviation, as well as the CEO of London Luton Airport, the Leader of Luton Borough Council, and the CEO of Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce, amongst many others.
Managing Director of Resource Group – Training Solutions, Ian Fitzpatrick, said: “As the aviation industry has reopened, there has been an immediate and growing need to recruit and train new talent. This project is part of Resource Group’s response to the significant challenge facing our industry.
“Our post-pandemic, regional training initiative is designed to bring our training offering closer to our client base, with the sole aim of significantly reducing the burden of apprentice accommodation costs at a time when the industry is largely in recovery mode.”
Apprentices from airlines including TUI, easyJet, DHL, and Harrods Aviation, will study for the first year of their 2-year apprenticeship programme with Resource Group in Luton, undertaking practical and classroom-based training to gain the relevant skills and qualifications to become Cat A Maintenance Certifying Mechanics.
