I've always had an interest in aviation and i'm delighted that the Air Transport Management course at Craven College has led me into full-time employment. Representatives from Jet2 came to speak to us about the industry and when I heard they were recruiting I found out about the jobs available, applied and was later taken on as a Flight Dispatcher. For the future I would love to continue working for Jet2 and be part of their management team.

I love the aviation industry and everything it entails so I decided to enrol on the Foundation Degree, to progression to the BSc Air Transport Management course. It was challenging but the tutors were very supportive. My dream is to become a pilot but if it doesn’t happen for me then this course has given me the opportunity to branch out into different avenues within aviation.
