Edexcel has tied up with the Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training

BANGALORE: High profile partnerships and takeovers in the aviation world appear to have found its echo in the aviation services sector as well. In the latest development, international awarding body Edexcel has tied up with the Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training in India to provide globally recognised BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) qualifications.

Edexcel’s HNC and Higher National Diplomas (HND) are designed with employers to provide students industry-relevant skills and commerce that are immediately transferable to the workplace. Many students use their BTEC HNC and HND qualifications to progress to degree courses.

Based in the United Kingdom, Edexcel offers academic and vocational qualifications and testing to more than 25,000 schools, colleges, employers and other places of learning in 113 countries. Qualifications include the international GCSE, AS and A levels, GNVQ, NVQ and the BTEC suite of vocational qualifications from entry level to BTEC Higher National Diploma. The Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training offers basic cabin crew training. It provides 30 hours training inside its own leased Airbus A-300.

This gives students a chance to get first-hand training experience and understand in-flight services.

For the record, hundreds of students have already graduated with BTEC HNC qualifications, landing placements in airlines such as British Airways, Emirates and Lufthansa.
