This weekend sees the start of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest time of the year once again, as the school holidays begin for many families from across the region.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport have made a special commitment to staff training and development by making the ‘Skills Pledge’ and as part of this commitment, Louise Ellman, MP for Liverpool Riverside, joined managers to open a new ‘Unionlearn’ training room as part of a joint partnership between the Airport Company and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
The ‘Skills Pledge’ is a voluntary, public commitment made by organisations, to invest in the skills of its workforce and is a promise that the employer will work to realise the potential of all their employees by developing their basic skills and working towards relevant, valuable qualifications.
The Airport Company’s commitment is to actively encourage and support staff to gain the skills and qualifications that will support their future employability and meet the needs of the Airport business.
As part of this commitment, the Airport Company and the TUC have worked together to develop a new Unionlearn training room at the Airport, with computers available for Union members across all organisations based at the Airport, to access on-line Learndirect courses.
Mark Whitworth, CEO of Peel Airports Group commented, "The Peel Airports Group recognises that its employees are fundamental to continued success and future growth. We also recognise the importance of training, to enable our employees to achieve their full potential.
"The Skills Pledge commitments that we have made and this new training facility shows Peel’s determination to be amongst the best in the airport’s business."
