230 students join Skyborne at Cabin Crew Futures event

More than 230 students from 12 further education colleges joined Skyborne Airline Academy at Gloucestershire Airport for the academy's first Cabin Crew Futures event.

At the event, Cheltenham-based Skyborne opened its doors to airline speakers from easyJet and British Airways, enabling young people to ask questions about a cabin crew career.

The college students were also able to take advantage of seminars and hands-on workshops, which included syllabus topics from City & Guilds, NCFE and BTEC qualifications.

The demand for cabin crew has hit an all-time high in the UK. The aim of the event was to encourage and inspire the next generation with a passion for aviation.

Gloucestershire College and Cirencester College were among those which attended, along with Merthyr College, Q3 Academy Tipton, Coventry College, Dudley College of Technology, Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group, Coleg y Cymoedd, Herefordshire and Ludlow College, Gordons School and Stanstead Airport College.

Due to the success of its first Cabin Crew Futures day, Skyborne is looking to hold a similar event later this year.
