Bournemouth & Poole College’s course delivers a smooth landing

One of the world’s leading aviation support service companies enjoyed a smooth landing at Bournemouth and Poole College.

Servisair, which operates aircraft ground support services at Bournemouth International Airport, checked-in with the first crop of bright young students studying on the college’s highflying Aviation course.

The really good news is that the majority on the course can expect to be offered interviews for posts with the company when the course ends.

That’s because Servisair decided to forge direct links with the college after the course was founded.

With nine people on board for the new course, fifty per cent will be guaranteed interviews with Servisair once they’ve completed their 25 weeks at the college.

The company, which has 16,000 employees worldwide and handles millions of aircraft movements globally through its ground support services, has helped design the college course. It leads to a City and Guilds Qualification.

Adrian Martin, head of travel, tourism and sport academy at Bournemouth and Poole College, said: “The aviation industry has a certain charisma and drama and with a locally based company on board with us the sky’s the limit for this course,” said Adrian

John Barber, Servisair Station Manager at Bournemouth Airport is delighted to be involved with the Aviation course.

He said: “Bringing young people into this industry is essential as it gives an energy and vibrancy to the workplace and that results in better service to our customers and the travelling public, we all are looking forward to being a part of this process.”
