Aviation Operations Level 3 - Richard Lightbody
Richard first studied Level 2 Travel & Tourism at East Surrey College as a route to the Level 3 Aviation Operations course. He is described by his tutor as being hardworking and was awarded Level 3 Aviation Operations Student of the Year in his first year.
He felt the Level 3 course provided a good base for going into aviation and travel and that it provided him with experience across all aspects of the industry. As Richard enjoys customer service based roles, he completed a work experience placement in a travel agency during his course.
Richard had the opportunity to improve his GCSE Maths and English grades during his course which helped him in his successful application for a job as Cabin Crew for British Airways.
