BAA launches dedicated education website


18 September 2006 - As the new school year gets underway, BAA has launched its education website, Take Off and Learn, to assist teachers particularly responsible for KS1 and KS4 pupils to learn more about airports. The site is also targeted for people interested in learning more about gaining vocational skills in order to work in an airport environment.

The website, which can be found at, provides information for parents and teachers including study plans and worksheets as well as information on BAA’s education programmes – including vocational skills and work experience.

Helen Murley, Director of Corporate Responsibility, BAA said: “BAA is committed to supporting the Government’s 14-19 year old education agenda through community programmes at all seven BAA airports in the UK. Our Take Off & Learn education website is just part of a programme designed to help young people develop key skills to support their personal development and future employability.”

Available on the site is a downloadable interactive multimedia program aimed at ICT GCSE pupils to help students find out about the use of ICT systems and databases in use at the airport.

For primary school children, an interactive program called Jumbo and Jet, has been developed. The program introduces children to the airport environment by illustrating the journey through airport through an animated storybook.
