Coulsdon Sixth Form College’s Upper Sixth students welcomed former Thomas Cook Cabin Manager, Leanna O’Brien as part of their BTEC Level 3 Travel and Tourism studies.
Students were appreciative of Leanna’s visit following the collapse of the Thomas Cook group in which she lost her job. Fortunately, she has found a new role with Virgin Atlantic to continue her career as Cabin Crew.
Students are currently studying unit 6 of their BTEC Travel and Tourism course which involves going through an application process for a job. Those that decided to apply for a Cabin Crew position were interviewed by Leanna, who equipped them with an experience of what it will be like in a real interview.
Leanna also gave the students a great insight into crew room duties before and after a flight. Students from both classes were then able to ask Leanna further questions about what it is like work in Cabin Crew.
