Lift-off as Six Interns Graduate from Manchester Airport

Posted on the 12th July 2023

Celebrations took place this month as six young people graduated from the supported internship programme at Manchester Airport.

The programme, which is run in partnership with The Manchester College, has graduated 72 young people over it’s 8 year lifespan. Every year, more young people who ordinarily might find it difficult to gain employment are supported with on-the-job training, gaining the opportunity to experience three different placements across the airport and setting them up for real-life applications at the end of the course.

On 29th June, Callum, Hannah, Sahad, Oliver, Briony, and Jakob all celebrated graduating from the programme during a ceremony at Manchester Airport’s Aerozone education centre.

Starting an internship was very scary and intimidating, but when you are around the right kind of people who support you, it becomes second nature.

We’ve been working with Manchester Airport since 2015. The students learn real jobs at the airport whilst learning employment skills in class sessions. Almost all the students go on to secure paid work and are an absolute credit to their employers.
