How will I be taught?

How will I be assessed?

Progress will be assessed through a portfolio of evidence, observations, examinations, role-plays and case studies.

Specialist components will be assessed off-site during a residential to the Virgin Atlantic training base at London Gatwick Airport.

This trip is compulsory and will cost approximately £225.

Will I need any extra equipment?

All students will be required to wear a uniform to designated classes. The cost of the uniform is approximately £100.00 – financial assistance may be available. Students need to be aware that this course is preparing them for work in a very competitive and demanding industry. Consequently they will be required to comply with a strict uniform and grooming code.

A mock airline interview day will take place in December in preparation for employment. This will cost approximately £40.00.

What qualifications will I get?

Successful students will achieve a City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Air Cabin Crew Training.

What will it allow me to do in the future?
