Resource Group support Thomas Cook Apprentices who lose employment

Resource Group is an EASA Part-147 Basic Training organisation that has established an outstanding reputation in the aviation technical training sector since its formation in 2003.  Resource Group have been delivering Apprenticeship programmes for over 10 years, with clients such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways, easyJet, DHL Air and many more. One of our Apprentice employers was Thomas Cook, who had 24 Apprentices at various stages of their Apprenticeship programme.

 Due to the collapse of Thomas Cook thousands of people have lost their jobs across the UK and sadly this has had a direct effect on the Apprentices we have been training. 15 Apprentices have completed all of their Part-66 modules and are now in their development phase hoping to gain maintenance experience. The remaining 9 were part way through their Part-66 modular training when Thomas Cook collapsed.

 These Apprentices have now been put into a situation where their employment has ended and they have to secure funds to pay for living costs and search for a new job. To help with this distressing period, Resource Group have continued their training as well as paying for accommodation for all Apprentices whilst they do not have an employer.

 On Tuesday 8th October, Resource Group are hosting a support event for all Thomas Cook Apprentices that have trained with us. As an industry embedded training provider, we will  bring together some of the biggest employers in the aviation sector on Tuesday to see if they can absorb the Thomas Cook Apprentices and offer new employment. Not only will we be supporting our Apprentices through this distressing situation but we have opened up the event to any Thomas Cook Apprentices who are seeking support and new employment.

 Resource Group have had great support from the ESFA who have provided advice and guidance on how to support the Thomas Cook Apprentices. With this support and our long lasting relationships with industry leading employers we strongly believe we can secure employment for all Thomas Cook Apprentices that have trained with Resource Group.
