In line with our responsibility to serve our local community we offer a series of educational programmes that are linked to and complement the key stages of the UK’s national curriculum. These visits are tailored to and aimed at school classes for pupils aged between 5 yrs – 15 yrs. old, extra-curricular groups and other community clubs.
Since its purchase by the Welsh Government in 2014, Cardiff Airport has been on a journey of continuing transformation; with improvements made to the terminal infrastructure and customer experience as well as the introduction of new airlines, new routes and increased choice for our customers. The Airport now welcomes over 1.4 million passengers each year and directly employs 250 staff across varied areas of expertise including: Finance and administration, Security, Engineering, Airfield Operations, QSHE, PRM support (Passengers with Reduced Mobility) and Fire Safety.
Each visit will be hosted by a member of the airport team, all of whom hold CRB clearance as part of their employee security requirements. It is expected that any groups are escorted by the appropriate number of adult escorts.
Cardiff Airport has carried out risk assessments for every part of the visit, therefore it is intended to complement your own risk assessments and does not supersede your health and safety Legislations.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) must be worn at all-time whilst in an airside location.
Please remember to bring High visibility vests on the day of your visit for children and adults visiting.
We provide a suite of online resources for the use of teachers and pupils. These resources have been developed in partnership with teachers to bridge the link between airport operations and the national curriculum key stage subjects including English, Citizenship, Geography, History, Maths, Science, and Business-related subjects.
