Success story

Charlie Harding

Travel and Tourism - Level 3

Charlie studied travel & tourism at the College of West Anglia (CWA) and now works as cabin crew for easyJet. Her ambition is to join the Amy Johnson Flying Initiative, a scheme fully funded by easyJet to encourage more ladies to become pilots.

Charlie said: "I completed 2 years of sixth form but never wanted to study at university and at the time I couldn't find a job within the travel & tourism industry. I decided to join CWA and alongside travel and tourism, completed a cabin crew course. I passed this course and have been interested ever since. I really enjoyed what the college and course had to offer, I loved learning about different countries, cultures and travelling in general. The teachers - Nicola, Stacey and Mary - were incredible; I wouldn’t have got to where I am today without their help. I love working for easyJet and the fact they encourage me to progress my career. I speak fluent Spanish and on a recent flight I translated the pilot’s tannoy announcement from English in to Spanish. He contacted the easyJet main manager in Luton and said how impressed he was with me and that I was a credit to the company, this made me feel amazing."
