Stansted Airport’s £11 million technical skills college has received the go ahead!
The unique project that will boost the skills and economy of Essex took a major step forward today after London Stansted Airport and Harlow College received planning permission from Uttlesford District Council.
Courses offered at the facility will be designed to bridge the skills gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects as well as specific airport areas such as aircraft and airport engineering, business studies, logistics and supply chain management, asset management, hospitality and customer service.
The college is seen by Stansted Airport as a critical project as it plans its growth with more than 500 people expected to train at the college each year in technical skills.
