Taking off with a cabin crew career
I’ve always wanted to travel – cabin crew is my dream job. When I first joined Derby College, I saw the Diploma as a qualification which could probably lead to a job a few years down the line. Then I got a job before I’d even finished College! Working with Ryanair will open up so many doors for my future but I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of the College.
