At Liverpool John Lennon Airport, we are committed to making education an exciting and inspiring experience for everyone- regardless of age or ability.
We recognise that LJLA is one of the leading employers in our region and as such, we aim to work closely within our community to provide insightful, sustainable and beneficial support to those in education or considering their first steps into the working world.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport has previously partnered with schools such as The Academy of St. Nicholas (previously known as Enterprise South Liverpool Academy/ESLA) between 2014 -2018 providing students with support and resources to aid their learning and development. Students are prospective employees of the future and we want to help encourage them to be better prepared for the workplace whether that’s at the Airport or elsewhere. As well as this, we have held multiple career events for schools such as Hugh Baird College, Liverpool and Halewood Academy, The Heath School, Runcorn and The UK Apprenticeship Hub.
