Mark’s Story

Mark has always dreamed of working as a pilot, and thanks to Pure Innovations recently completed a weeks work experience at City Airport in Eccles, Manchester.

"His confidence has grown." - Hayley- employment advisor

In an exciting week at the airport, he took part in jobs such as working in the control tower completing flight information strips, listening in to emergency service call outs and watching the helicopter take off, and working in maintenance.

Mark really enjoyed his week with his favourite part being working on the flight information strips, a job his duty manager Dale said he recorded very accurately.

His employment advisor Hayley couldn’t be happier with Mark’s experience:

I have definitely seen an increase in Mark’s confidence, at first he didn’t speak much, but on the last day he spoke to them before I had, so it’s really important for him because at first you can be nervous but you become more comfortable the longer you spend there. I think the skills he’s learnt this week can easily be transferred to a job like a pilot, or working in aviation
