Brit school to teach sixth formers first cabin crew courseJanuary 25th, 2011 - 5:15 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 25 (ANI): A secondary school in Britain is set to teach its sixth formers the first cabin crew course, which on completion they will be awarded the equivalent of a GCSE A-C grade.
Students at Manchester Enterprise Academy, in Wythenshawe, who need no previous qualifications to enrol, will be taught everything they need to know about “coordinating a safe flight”.
The topics range from how to keep nails clean and short to finding shade and water in the event of a crash landing in a desert.
The academy will be the first secondary school in the country to teach the City and Guilds’ cabin crew qualification to its sixth formers.
Manchester Enterprise Academy is one of four flagship schools built in a deprived area of Manchester for 84 million pounds under Labour’s PFI- funded Building Schools for the Future Scheme.
The course will start in September for 20 pupils, and the college is anticipating interest from both boys and girls.
“Some of the students haven’t travelled very much at all - some haven’t even left Wythenshawe - so it’s a really exciting opportunity for them,” the Daily Mail quoted teacher Dan Murphy as saying.
“Hopefully the course will open their eyes to the world.
“We hope to link up with some airlines to see if they can provide some of the training and fast track our students so they will get employment at the end of the course,” he stated. (ANI)
