The Aviation Operations students travelled to Stansted to visit SWISSPORT and look at the different job roles on offer they even had an opportunity to shadow staff on check-in. The students are enjoying the new course but found the trip to Stansted to really open their eyes to the opportunities available to them at the end of the course, and even saw previous students working at the airport.
