Aaron Pickford

Cabin Crew with British Airways

Aaron is about to begin a career as a member of mixed fleet (long and short haul) cabin crew with British Airways.

Aaron studied the Level 2 and 3 Travel and Tourism qualifications at Hugh Baird College.

Aaron said:

What I liked the best about Hugh Baird College was the way it helped me develop and really prepare me for a career in the Travel Industry. I gained lots of experience of dealing with the public while working at College events. This really helped me grow in confidence and gave me instances I could refer to when I went for my interviews with airlines.”
The tutors on my course were really supportive and taught me so much. They made learning fun and encouraged me and all my classmates to grasp opportunities and believe in ourselves.”
When we were coming to the end of our time at College, our tutors were keeping us in the loop about job opportunities in the industry and this really helped me.”

Aaron's advice:

Once you’re certain it’s the right course for you, go for it and stick with it! There will be times when you want to give up, but keep following your dreams and don’t quit.”
