TAG Global Training announced its first educational partner will be Farnborough College of Technology. During a plaque unveiling ceremony at the college on July 3, Debbie Elliot, training manager at TAG Global Training, said, “Alongside TAG Farnborough Airport’s ‘Aviation to Education’ initiative, TAG Global Training has worked closely with the College to engage with their travel and tourism students and highlight the career opportunities within business aviation. With an increasing demand globally for jobs in the aviation sector, having the opportunity to engage with our future generation is vitally important to us.”
Established in 2007, TAG Global Training originally offered training opportunities to pilots and cabin crews. Increasing demand has allowed the training facility at Farnborough Airport to expand its offerings to include courses for operators’ personnel as well as corporate and commercial jet personnel.
Meanwhile, students at Farnborough College of Technology can study full and part-time courses. These include A-levels, awards, certificates, diplomas, apprenticeships, foundation degrees, honor degrees, and some postgraduate options. The college is accredited by the University of Surrey and offers courses from two campuses.
Farnborough College of Technology is hoping the tie-up will help students begin their careers. “This partnership represents another fantastic opportunity for the college to engage with a world-class organization on our doorstep,” said Virginia Barrett, principal of Farnborough College of Technology. “The experiences our students will gain as a result of this partnership will be of utmost benefit to them as they start their careers within the travel and tourism industry.”
