This course is perfect if you enjoy providing great customer service and you’d like a career in the aviation industry.
You’ll learn about the aviation industry, the importance of health and safety, meeting customer needs, air travel and handling air passengers. We offer a one-year BTEC Subsidiary Diploma and a two-year BTEC Diploma. Students choosing the one-year option can apply to top-up to the BTEC Diploma in just one further year of study.
You can expect lots of industry experience with our partners Swissport Academy, the ground handling agents at East Midlands Airport. Students who successfully complete the course will be guaranteed an interview (conditions apply which we will be happy to discuss with you). Nottingham College will help you to gain valuable experience on work placements that give you a real insight into the industry.
