British Airways: Speedbird-Z
Jan 2021 - Feb 2021
I've always had an interest in aviation, and I had always hoped to be able to complete some
work experience related to the aviation sector.
However, due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic that arose in 2019 and shaped our lives so
differently, my work experience opportunity with British Airways was dropped.
British Airways introduced their online equivalent of the physical experience, launching their website: Speedbird-Z. I took the opportunity to complete their carefully constructed modules and watch a selection of webinars based on the following:
- Insight into British Airways: an introduction to British Airways' history, career opportunities and information about their customer service
- Application Advice: details about making a good CV, interviews and other job application advice
- Confidence and Wellbeing: information about wellbeing, resilience and other stressful aspects of employment.

Technology Virtual Work Experience powered by Springpod
I found this online technology work experience furthered my understanding of the sector and
the roles involved.
It has further assured me of my willingness to become a software developer.
Politics Virtual Work Experience powered by Springpod
Taking part in this opportunity has ignited the fire within to become a politician in the
future. I enjoy representing people's views and engaging in debate.
One thing I learnt was that it would be worthwhile to continue with the Computer Science
route until later on in my career, at which point I can progress into politics.
Teaching Virtual Work Experience powered by Springpod
Passing on our understanding onto the generations to come is not an easy skill. I had the
pleasure of completing this 11-day online teaching work experience to learn
more about teaching and to decide whether this will be an appropriate sector to dive into in
I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the course, particularly the information provided about
getting into the sector.
