Course overview

As Scotland’s capital college, we are excited to offer this practical course focusing on developing and enhancing the knowledge and skills required for gaining employment within the growing aviation sector.

We are fortunate to have Scotland's busiest airport right on our doorstep. Edinburgh Airport serves 130 destinations with 188 routes and carries over 12.4 million passengers yearly. These figures are continuing to grow year on year.

You will study a variety of subjects from working as Cabin Crew and Airport Ground Operations to learning about how to deliver excellent customer care and preparing you for the selection process. This course is focused on the operation of airlines both on the ground and in the air.

In addition, we are excited to announce the collaboration with Cabin Crew International, the official recruitment partner of Ryanair, Europe's favourite airline.  You will be guaranteed an interview for a Cabin Crew position towards the end of your course with a start date on completion if successful, should you wish to pursue this as a career.
