Determined to succeed, Weronika completed an intense three-week course with EasyJet, moved to London and is now based at London Gatwick Airport. Weronika is currently working on short-haul flights and has so far enjoyed travelling to her first few destinations including Barcelona, Inverness and Faro.
Kayleigh Grierson (Curriculum Leader in Travel, Business and Catering at North Lindsey College) said, ”Weronika was a lovely student who always worked very hard. She showed the qualities and skills needed for cabin crew from early on in her college career. We worked with her to develop her knowledge of the travel industry by completing her Level 3 Travel and Tourism qualification to enable her to gain her wings for EasyJet. We are very proud of Weronika and we hope to continue developing other students whose career goals are to work in one of the most popular industries in the UK.”
Weronika said, “College was a great experience, I really enjoyed it as Travel and Tourism was what I always wanted to study. The tutors were very supportive in my two years, I specifically enjoyed the specialist tourism unit. I am currently loving my new job for EasyJet and cannot wait to travel to more destinations.”
Despite her new career, Weronika will be returning to the classroom in September to talk to the new intake of students at North Lindsey College about her experiences and share her success story with others who are looking for a career in the travel industry.
Kayleigh added, “Weronika is just one example of many of our students that have gained their wings this year. She is a great example to other students that are looking for a career in the travel industry and that North Lindsey College is the place to study. The next time you fly, it makes me so proud that one of our former students could be looking after you.”
All Travel and Tourism students that have applied to go to university this year have received offers from their chosen providers. Other students wanting to go straight into employment have progressed onto positive destinations including Tui, Easyjet, Wizz Air, Jet2 and also Ryanair.
