Air Cabin Crew Level 2

This exciting program is aimed at learners who would like to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of the role of Air Cabin Crew to hopefully progress into employment within the Aviation Industry.

You will study a range of subjects that are relevant to the role and industry.

To enhance your studies and broaden your employment opportunities you will also be required to complete an additional qualification in Customer Service and maths and English if applicable.

In line with industry standards you will be required to wear a uniform consisting of navy blue formal trousers/skirt, pale blue shirt/blouse and a neck tie/scarf (full details will be given when accepted onto the course).

To achieve the full level 2 Diploma you must complete the following six core units:

  • Introduction to Airline Aviation Operations.You will explore the types of airlines, aircraft/airline terminology used in communication throughout the industry, gain an awareness of Aviation geography and a sound knowledge of the routes that airlines fly.
  • Health, Safety and Security.You will research and gain a thorough understanding of a range of legislation related to the activities that airlines adhere to and how they maintain health, safety and security in a confined environment.
  • Airline Emergency Procedures.You will learn how to respond to various planned and unplanned emergencies on-board an aircraft including the operation of emergency equipment.  You will also study survival techniques and will be required to perform these in water at a local leisure centre.
  • Crew Room Duties.You will cover the duties of the cabin crew both pre and post flight and gain an understanding of the importance of briefings.
  • Role of Cabin Crew (on- board)You will develop the necessary knowledge of the on-board role of cabin crew. To support this you will learn how to prepare the cabin for boarding, deal with passengers with special requirements, carry out a professional in-flight service, make effective passenger announcements and complete the necessary documentation required for a flight.
  • Preparation for employment as Air Cabin Crew You will gain an understanding of the importance of personal presentation, attitude and behaviour of those wishing to work in the airline industry. From this you will develop your self- confidence by participating in an interview process.

The course is designed to prepare students to seek employment within the industry. However, many choose to progress on to Aviation Level 2 or Travel and Tourism courses giving them more opportunities for different careers within the Aviation/Travel and Tourism sector.

Course Leader

Your Course Tutor

I have worked in Aviation since 1988 employed by a leading charter airline as Cabin Crew and progressing to Senior Cabin Crew, Line Trainer and later as a Base Coordinator. I have a strong passion for the subject and can often be found watching aircraft take off and land at the end of the runway at our local airport!

I joined the college in 2003 as a part time lecturer. Due to the opening of Doncaster Sheffield Airport the Aviation courses gained lots of interest and my role soon developed. I now find myself teaching full time on a course that is very popular and I am keen to pass on my knowledge, experience and skills to students who have the desire to work in the industry. For me, there is no better reward than to receive a reference request for previous students who have gained employment with an airline or airport. I have watched and received photographs of many students who have gained their wings and now fly around the world as Cabin Crew.

During your time as a Student at Doncaster College you will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of enrichment events including overseas residential and a day trip to a local airport as part of your programme of study
