The training team at Brymon Airways, a wholly owned subsidiary of British
Airways, provided a record 1,023 employee-days of training during the last twelve months, at its head office training facilities, marking an increase of 35% on the previous year.
Training facilities at Brymon’s headquarters were improved following the company’s move to new offices at Weston-super-Mare close to Bristol International Airport, the airline’s largest base.
The number of employees and the requirement for training and development has significantly increased with Brymon’s continuing expansion programme. Brymon’s training centre now has four classrooms, a computer-based training room and a wide range of innovative development programmes and facilities.
In addition to training for all new pilots, cabin crew, engineers and passenger services personnel joining the airline, Brymon also provides regular refresher courses for all staff to ensure everyone is aware of the latest developments, issues and practices.
Ruth Bradshaw, Brymon’s Human Resources and People Development Manager, said: “We believe strongly in the continued personal development of our staff through specific job training.
“Thanks to the new training facilities we are able to provide even more diverse development programmes than ever before, which is particularly important since our staff extends across a range of specialist duties including pilots, cabin crew, engineers and many more.”
Brymon Airways General Manager Commercial, Mike Coombes commented: “The focus on improved employee training programmes highlights Brymon’s commitment to providing world-class customer service through training and developing our people.”
