STUDENTS from University Technical College (UTC) Heathrow, based at Northwood, enjoyed a day of inter-active learning with airport staff, including creating a crisis communications plan. 

They had to use teamwork, problem-solving skills and clear decision-making that might not always feature in their studies.   

UTC Principal Wayne Edwards said: “This is the second crisis day we have hosted following the success last year, giving [our 14 to 16-year-olds] a clear insight into the many types of career available to them at the airport.”
