On Thursday 16th February 2023, London Biggin Hill Airport was delighted to unveil a new skills and training centre. The unique space was formally opened by the London Borough of Bromley’s Portfolio Holder for Renewal, Recreation and Housing, Councillor Yvonne Bear.

Based on the airport site, The Hub has been launched to support the airport’s colleagues, local businesses and community organisations by providing a dedicated space for employers to upskill their workforce. It will also be made available to local schools and colleges to support educational programmes for the borough’s young people, including sector-based and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) skills training.

The facility offers a range of flexible meeting and event rooms, available to book on an individual basis, that have been designed to accommodate all types and stages of learning.
