Easyjet apprentice drive

EasyJet has appointed the first group to a new cabin crew apprenticeship scheme, the first of its kind under new government apprenticeship standards, with 25 hopefuls preparing for a 12-month training programme from this September.

After completing the initial phase at easyJet’s training academy at Gatwick, the apprentices will receive further on-the-job coaching and development, including regular progress checks with their training coach.

Successful candidates will fly as cabin crew from Gatwick to more than 100 destinations across Europe, helping to serve the 18m-plus easyJet passengers who fly to and from the airport each year.

EasyJet director of cabin services Tina Milton said: “This apprenticeship will give recruits the opportunity to earn an industry-recognised qualification, as well as gain their easyJet cabin crew wings.”

Aviation minister Baroness Sugg said: “We need to inspire the next generation to pursue rewarding careers in aviation like cabin crew, air traffic control and engineering. EasyJet’s investment is ensuring young people have the skills they need to join our flourishing aviation industry.”
