I’m so glad I chose the path I did – studying such a vocational course at Southwark College was great for my CV, and now I’m doing the job I always wanted to do.

Airlines aim to build professional and well groomed air crew so in order to pass these interviews you need to look like the part and sell yourself. One of the things I learned at College was how to stand out in these interviews.
