Employment success make aviation courses top picks

Five aviation students at Trafford College have become the first of their department to secure jobs from a range of different top-flight employers.

With an employment rate of 90% and several going to university, it’s no wonder many students choose to travel from across the North West for our range of aviation courses.

Level 2 City and Guild Aviation Operations student, Adam Holmes, who also studied Level 1 Travel and Tourism at our specialist flight centre in Altrincham, has secured a job with ground and cargo handler, Swissport.

While James Mulholland, from our Level 3 Aviation Operations course, has landed top notch job as a Flight Simulator Instructor with Ravenair at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

James, who holds his private pilot’s licence, impressed his tutors with his dedication, gaining distinction after distinction during the course while juggling flying lessons and a part time job as a lifeguard.

Tutor Colette Ryder said: “Aviation Operations consists of 30 different units - from the development of the industry, to health and safety, security, conflict resolution, leadership, meteorology and bag handling systems, to name but a few. James has worked really hard due to his determination to do well.”

Meanwhile, Jacob Wakefield and Maximilian Cave are ready to apply their knowledge to all things aircraft-related, on inflight operations apprenticeships with British Airways. The pair will arrange the routing of different aircraft, look for alternative airports for flights and special assistance for VIP and disabled customers from BA’s local hub in Didsbury.

Finally Thomas Clarke has gained a place with Jet2 as one of their cabin crew.

Colette added: “We make it our business to ensure students get really good jobs every year. Whether it’s taking time out to support them with their CVs or going over what they need to know in a niche part of the industry.

“Students know that and travel to Trafford College from all over the North West.”
