Successful Air Stewardess Aimee returns to Seevic College
Monday, 28 October 2013
A former Seevic College student now working as a Cabin Attendant for Easyjet has returned to Seevic College to show Travel & Tourism students that the sky is the limit.
Aimee Hall, 19, visited the College on Thursday 24 October to share her airline industry experience with the College’s next crop of budding Cabin Attendants.
Seevic College offers Travel & Tourism and Cabin Crew qualifications for school leavers and adults. Vocational learning facilities were installed in classrooms during Summer 2013.
Aimee said: “I’ve now been working for Easyjet for five and half months and it’s been an amazing experience. People normally say they want to join Cabin Crew to travel the world, but I wanted to offer great customer service in a completely different environment. Having to deal with the unknown every day makes it a unique experience.”
Aimee successfully applied to become a Cabin Attendant with Easyjet while still completing her Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel & Tourism at Seevic College.
Aimee, who previously attended De La Salle School in Basildon, commenced training with Easyjet at their base at London Luton Airport just one week after successfully completing her studies at the College in June 2013.

She is now based at London Gatwick, flying regular short haul flights across Europe.
Aimee adds: “I chose Easyjet because their routes are typically much shorter than other airlines, which means I don’t have to be away from home as much. If I had to offer advice to anyone wanting to get in to Cabin Crew, it would be to learn to be patient with people and their difficulties. And to get used to getting up early each morning!”
Easyjet is the largest airline in the UK, measured by number of passengers carried, operating domestic and international scheduled services on over 600 routes in 32 countries.
The firm employs over 8,000 people throughout Europe but mainly based in the UK.
Seevic College offers the one-year BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Travel & Tourism and two-year BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel & Tourism. We also offer Level 2 Introduction to Cabin Crew for adult learners, which can be studied one evening per week over a year.
Tutors at the College have real-life industry experience, including working in Cabin Crew and a variety of roles across the Travel industry.
Reflecting on her time at Seevic College, Aimee adds: “My Tutors really supported me whilst I applied for my job at Easyjet. They helped me to put together my CV, to complete the application form and even went through mock interview questions with me. It was so helpful and made me much less nervous for the real thing.”
Seevic College’s next Open Evening takes place on Tuesday 26 November 2013 between 5.30pm and 8pm.
