Fiona showed her support for Heathrow’s apprenticeship scheme at a parliamentary event in Westminster.
The Heathrow Engineering Apprenticeship Scheme and The Heathrow Academy have placed thousands of people into apprenticeships, and have invested more than £4 million in the growth of the Academy. The Government’s decision to expand Heathrow will see the number of apprenticeships double to 10,000 and Slough council’s support for expansion will be rewarded by guaranteeing a minimum number of opportunities for local people.
Fiona said “This is an exciting time for Heathrow. The third runway will open up new jobs, new opportunities and more money for Slough and the UK. I enjoyed meeting apprentices who are learning, earning and building a career at one of the largest employers in this area.”
