Smart talks at East Surrey College
We’ve been working closely with East Surrey College to share some real-life insights in to the world of aircraft charter.
Recently, Matthew Savage, Smart’s Sales Director was invited to give a talk to students in the second year of their BTEC course, which highlighted some of the more interesting aspects of our industry, and the role of a charter broker.
‘We’re keen to invest in the next generation of professional air charter specialists; if that means taking some time out to explain how the industry works, then it’s time well spent’ Matthew said.
‘I was really impressed with the knowledge and interest shown by the students. We’re exploring many different ways we can work with the college in the future. We’re creating a long lasting partnership, which could involve work experience placements, live business projects and I sincerely hope in the future we will see successful students joining us as trainee brokers.
As someone who started in the industry aged 18, I know how difficult it can be to secure that first job, I would be delighted if we can help young people embark on a career in the air charter industry.’
The students are all attending the BTEC Extended Diploma in Aviation Operations, one of a number of aviation based courses available at the college.
