The International department at Sussex Coast College Hastings has won a contract with the Atlantic Flight School, to instruct 100 Libyan pilot cadets in English Language; the students arrived in May, with teaching starting on 12th May.
Head of International, Jeremy Oughton said ‘The contract represents a significant contribution to Sussex Coast College Hastings, its staff, the local economy and town of Hastings. I am pleased to welcome the Libyan guests and hope they will enjoy their learning experience at Sussex Coast College Hastings as much as our other national and international students do.’
English teacher, Alan Branall commented that ‘The students are highly motivated, interested in the culture and getting used to life in England. They are struggling with different shop opening times and missing their families very much, but enjoying their experience.’
One student, Shihabeddin Sakkah, was keen to share his views, commenting ‘Everything here is going great – so much better than I expected. The lessons are good and Hastings is wonderful. People are really nice and the teachers know how to inspire your mind.’
The college welcomes our Libyan guests into Sussex Coast College Hastings and wishes them a great time in our town.
