The latest batch of high flying students from our Level 2 Cabin Crew course have celebrated their graduation with a wings ceremony at British Airways’ Waterside headquarters.
West London’s College are the only education provider who have ever been invited to hold their cabin crew graduation ceremony inside the Waterside building - a wonderful reflection on the strong relationship between British Airways and the College.
Completing the Cabin Crew course means the graduates are now in a prime position to secure employment with an airline as so many of their predecessors have done.
For graduate Nelly Luntadila, it was a huge day. “This graduation means everything to me” she explained. “It has really helped me gain the confidence to apply to any airline.”
Nelly’s positive attitude came through with her actions - she achieved 100% attendance and punctuality during the course. “It was the first class I’ve been in where I’ve actually looked forward to going to lessons” she said.
For Weam Muzamil, coming back to school to study the Cabin Crew course was a big achievement, but it was something she had always wanted to do. “It showed me if you can dream it, you can do it” she explained.
Ahead of the ceremony, the successful graduates were taken for a tour of British Airways' Waterside building by Mel Kose, Work Experience Programme Lead at BA, who talked about some of the history of the building and offered her congratulations to the group.
“It was a pleasure to invite Hammersmith & Fulham College Cabin Crew students to British Airways for their end of course graduation.
“Customer service roles are extremely important to any airline, and all students displayed incredible potential to take a role in the aviation industry. Congratulations to all students who graduated, we hope to see you in the skies soon!”
Lois Vassell, Curriculum Manager for Travel & Tourism at the College was very proud of the efforts of the graduates, explaining that they are now fully ready to take on the tough job application process followed by airlines.
“This is the first step in their career following a 16-week course which makes them fully prepared for the gruelling interview and assessment days held by airlines.
“The students have done amazingly well and I’ve seen a real boost in their confidence over the course. They’ve really honed their skills”.
