Manchester Airports Group High Flyers Academy

Posted on Friday, July 11th, 2014

We have just completed our second successful year of the ‘High Flyers’ campaign for Manchester Airports Group managing events over five days 200 students attending each day.

This year, we returned to take over MAG’s Concorde hangar once more and deliver engaging employability events for students aged 13 – 15 from schools in the local area. 

Students were tasked with averting a crisis by running the airport for the day in the absence of all the staff, working together to tackle a series of tasks based on real-life career-based airport scenarios.

After the success of last year many of the tasks remained the same with a few new activities added, based on department areas such as security and car parking. 

The day involved students participating airport career-inspired challenges with volunteers from each department at MAG supporting the activities, and providing insight into their job roles and career paths. This was found to be a huge benefit to students in helping to broaden their knowledge of job opportunities and possible pathways into roles. 

Wendy Sinfield, Community Relations Manager was delighted with the project.
‘Thanks to your team, they were excellent and I would love to work with you all again. They helped to design interactive and curriculum based tasks that were relevant and engaging.

The feedback from schools was excellent and one teacher told me that OFSTED look for students to be engaged and on task, she observed that if we looked around the room they would be delighted to see the behaviours of students on all of the stations.’  

Manchester Airports Group is the largest UK owned airport operator, serving around 42 million passengers and handling 600,000 tonnes of air freight every year, through its ownership and operation of Manchester, London Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports.
