Manchester Airport has created 12 new training champions to give employees a
say in shaping the range of in-house and external training opportunities.
The new initiative is being spearheaded by head of training Elizabeth
Jovanovic. She said the aim is for the champions to become the communication
link between the training department and the airport staff, especially those in
working in operational areas.
"The new training champions are a brilliant way of exchanging
information and ideas about training. They will be the key training contact for
their department and will assist in evaluating the training that is
Chairman of Manchester Airport, Brian Harrison, has given his support:
"Training has always been a high priority at the airport, but we were keen
to get the staff more involved in choosing what types of courses would be
useful to their career development," he said.
The training champions come from several departments across the company and
will meet on a regular basis.
