Nearly thirty students who are receiving air cabin crew and customer service training at MidKent College’s Maidstone Campus departed Kent in the early hours of a cold and snowy February morning to take part in the JARE Training programme.
An action-packed day then saw the students completing an exciting range of activities. Tasks covered how to use a plane’s evacuation slide, what to do during a galley fire, how to cope in a smoke-filled cabin and how to conduct an over-wing exit. The training event also provided students with a chance to develop and improve their in-flight service skills.
Participating students were accompanied by college head of faculty Karen Mandeville and lecturers Jo Morrin, Debbie Siminson and Diane Payne. Ms Payne said: “The group thoroughly enjoyed the day - so much so, the college hopes to offer similar trips in the future.”
JARE Training supplied the college’s dummy aircraft, which is housed at its Maidstone Campus and used to train students studying for a cabin crew diploma.
