More news, no ads


Students from Newark’s Air and Space Institute (ASI) will be receiving on-the job training at the rejoin’s largest airport to help their careers take flight.

Learners impressed officials at East Midlands Airport during a recent tip as a result seven students have secured holiday jobs there, where they will get to learn the details of airport operations.

They hope this work experience will give them first-hand knowledge of the skills and behaviours required by the aviation sector.

Some of the students are George Annakin, Krystian Skrzypczak and Nathan Banyard.

Nathan said: “We had a tour of the airport, we got involved in a few different exercises and took part in an interview where they asked us how we would react in certain scenarios.

“They’ve offered us work experience, which could lead on to further opportunities at East Midlands Airport.

“We’ll be helping in various roles around the airport, including airport security, and filling in the gaps where they need us.”

Krystian said: “We are hoping to make a lot of contacts and to get to know more about what goes on in the environment we eventually want to work in.”

Staff including airport managing director Clare James will be directing them away from any turbulent troubles they may face during the experience.

The ASI, part of Newark College, is also one of nine priority projects developed by Newark Towns Fund Board and is funded through the government’s Towns Fund initiative.

Meanwhile, Newark College continues to work with Asda, enabling students to collect food through the college foodbank.

A free-of-charge meal is provided by the foodbank and, with research showing that good food supports learning, this makes it a priority for students who require its use.

Breakfast, dinner and drinks are easily accessed by students throughout the day with options to take food home to cook and enjoy with others.

Lead for education and training at Newark College, Penny Taylor said: “We are incredibly grateful to Asda Newark for their continued support in providing food for our students.”

Students have meal bags and different recipes to cook at home.

Over the past few months the number of people using the foodbanks has increased and, as a non-means-tested service, is accessible to all who require it.
