Exclamation Iberia Cadetes 2019

So Iberia has just two days ago announced their new half-sponsored scheme for 2019. Of course I have just applied. Thoughts?

Looks like an interesting program. Half funded sounds good. Selection process might be tough!

€55K plus Type Rating is still a lot of money, whilst it's an improvement on the previous offering from Iberia, it's still going to exclude a lot of candidates on financial grounds. They'd have been much better doing an FPP-style funding solution if fully funding the training was not an option.

Do they not fund the A320 rating?

You need to be a Spanish native speaker apparently

My guess is not only Spaniards will apply, but also Latin Americans with European passports (like me). Being the main airline connecting Europe and LatAm maybe they’re interested in taking in a couple people who aren’t Spanish? Of course the total opposite could be true, and they could be looking just to hire nationals. I’ve never figured out if Iberia is open to hiring non-Spanish people, my guess is if you meet the requirements you’re fair game. I know other IAG airlines like BA and Aer Lingus have taken in people from all over Europe, hopefully Iberia will follow suit.

This is my very cynical view, but at the end of the day given EU law and the fact that most Europeans will speak English, there isn't much that BA or Aer Lingus can do to stop EU nationals applying. I mean Aer Lingus could say you need to speak Irish, but that would only make 36% of their country eligible. Air France and I suspect Iberia put the language requirement in to prevent people not from Spain/France applying, but this keeps them within the rules of the EU. (Again my cynical view).

True. I just hope that they’re open to other Spanish-speaking nationals from LA who hold EU passport. I also don’t know if AF is open to EU passport-holding Algerians or Tunisians for example, but a man can dream.

Best of luck to all applying!

BA ask for level 6 English (rightly so) and Aer Lingus could do the same. You won't filter out all non EU nationals but it will certainly prevent a significant number from being able to apply without stopping your own.

Iberia ask for Level 6 Spanish, that can only be understood as an attempt to filter out non Spanish. Even an eager student couldn't learn Spanish to a decent level and apply.

I did the oral english benchmark yesterday morning. I hope to receive the invitation to assessment day during this week.

What are your dates for assessment?

Looking for information

Hello guys,

I was reading the candidate profile on the FTE's website, and before applying to this selection, I'd like to ask you some questions:

1- I noticed in the candidate profile that I should hold a formal ELP certificate. Is it required to have it during the first stage of the application ? Unfortunately, I don't have it yet, but I will be more than happy to pass it. Moreover, I've seen that it's possible to do it in FTE school. Do you think that it will be possible to attend to this certificate before the 5th of September ?

2- I saw that several questions will be asked to me in the first step, how can I prepare myself for it ?

3- If I am selected to go to Jerez, is it possible for me to select a specific date to go through the assessment in the school ?

I thank you in advance for your reply.

Mark971;

Hi,
1. If you dont have an ELP certificate you will have to do an online benchmark and thereafter an oral exam through skype.
2. It's just two questions "in no more than 750 words" and you have 5 days to answer.
3. In the questionnaire you will be asked your preferred date for the first assessment at Jerez.
Hope this helps you out
