Please look at some recent comments from Colleges, Schools, Universities, Students and Others – making everyone proud to have come to JARE ATP and to achieved something as well as learning a range of new aviation and related skills.
We always like to hear from colleges, schools, universities and other users who visit our Boeing B737 Aviation & Training Centre in Bournemouth from around the UK and in the last few years we have received a large variety of very positive comments from colleges & universities who have brought their students to our Centres for a range of activities; many were for our Airline & Airport Practical Activity Days as well as our popular Uniformed Public Services options – here are what a few of these colleges, universities and schools wrote to us.
Between 2018 – 2023 we have welcomed on average 50-60 colleges per year and using a Feedback Form we have had a 100% positive feedback from all students from Colleges, Universities and Schools visiting our Centre as well as similar positive comments from their Tutors – why not join in on this success.
