What our participants say about us

Chaz Boynton

“I found the course to be a very informative and enjoyable experience. Simon's teaching helped it to be more innovative and entertaining, and because of the course I have now become a Team Member for a travel food company and have worked at several of their outlets at Stansted Airport. I would definitely recommend this course to others.”

“I thought the course was a great learning experience - I learnt lots of new things about airport customer service. During the course, my tutor was very good to get along with and very knowledgeable about everything he was teaching me. He also helped me with interview techniques…

And in the end I got a job!”

“The course itself was very informative, and even though I have worked at Stansted previously, it had a lot to teach me. The interview techniques on the last day helped a lot too!

After the course, I was delighted when I got offered a position with GUK. The position is ‘Baggage Handler’, but the company are also responsible for security and ensuring the safety of passengers as they make their way to their flights - this means I have the option to move into security roles and gain more experience as I go.

I was offered a position straight away, being told I was the perfect applicant… and that I could progress into airport security in the future.

Thank you Simon & Stansted Academy for your help and support!

“I cannot recommend the course enough. I normally find this sort of thing slow and boring, but course tutor (Simon) was totally engaging and I found it really interesting. The course gave me the confidence to apply for positions that I wouldn't have normally gone for, and the CV help/advice was invaluable.

The free travel card is such a good idea - it enabled me to travel to and from the airport for interviews and assessments.

I have now been offered my dream job, which I didn't think I had a chance of getting before. Thank you so much.”

“I would like to thank Stansted Academy and the tutor (Simon) for giving me a chance to do the training with them. The course was so effective that during my Passenger Service Agent training, it was easy for me to do all the tests as I had covered most of the content with him. This course gave me good foundation!”
