Any news?

I ran into a few Jetstar trainees/cadets recently at a local GA airport.

They had no clue when/if they would be offered a job.

Has there been any inside rumours/info on this situation of late?

I believe that 95% AUS JQ cadets have been offered a job and have either completed type rating, or currently completing their rating.

Yeah,
With QF guys returning from LWOP, EK and other internationals vacuuming up people, there shortly won't be many JQ cadet graduates who aren't flying or aren't being trained up soon.

2019 Jetstar Cadetship

Just wondering if there is anyone willing to share information regarding the Jetstar cadetship program for 2019. I'm aware that there are a few previous threads concerning the cadetship, however, it seems most have just spiralled into toxic arguments, here's to another try?
1. What can you do to make your online application stand out, to proceed onto the ADAPT test??
2. Are all these practice ADAPT tests you can find online very accurate (as most require payment)??
3. I graduated highschool a couple of years ago so I believe some basic math revision would be beneficial, however, is there anything else worth revising in order to be more prepared for the whole application process??
4. Any info regarding the questions they'll be asking throughout the interviews?
5. Approx. how many candidates are chosen for the cadet program?

I've already been in contact with CAE Oxford Aviation, and they believe the application process will begin around April again, they also informed me that having any kind of flight experience/knowledge gives you no priority over any other candidate...

Thanks

1. Be a female
2. possibly
3. Basic maths should suffice although i doubt anyone questioning your maths skills during interview process
4. Mostly about yourself and why you chose JQ and such. Do your JQ research
5. 10-15 I think

lastly, good luck. Enjoy the process!

Guys what is the upper age limit? Is it true that one has to cough out 150K upfront?

I'm pretty certain you don't pay the full 150K upfront, you most likely pay it in installments, just like when studying at a university (which is part of the cadetship), you also have the potential to get FEE-HELP from the government (I think they'll loan you around 100k). Based on past forums, I've read some people being accepted into the cadetship late 30s even, not quite sure 40s beyond

Thank you Captain. Much appreciated. So they are going to open the program in April 19?

No specific date just yet, was only informed to be on the lookout 'around' April.

Unfortunately, if I remember correctly... roger7060 only has Australian Permanent Residency, not citizenship.

From the J* Cadetship booklet (available here: https://www.jetstar.com/au/en/career...vs5-sept18.pdf )
Is financial assistance available?
It is expected that any Australian citizen admitted into the Jetstar Ab Initio Cadet Program and Associate Degree will be eligible for FEE-HELP. Australian Permanent Residents and New Zealand citizens are not eligible for FEE-HELP.

FEE-HELP is a loan available to eligible students to cover the Tuition Fee up to the maximum FEEHELP loan limit. A maximum lifetime FEE-HELP loan limit applies; in 2018 the FEE-HELP loan limit is $102,392. The Associate Degree of Aviation has a total estimated cost of $149,014 of which $102,392 (2018 Loan Limit) can be offset with the FEE-HELP loan.

This means that students must meet upfront $32,793 of university tuition fees plus the $13,829 for expected additional expenses listed above. This gives an estimated total upfront cost which will not be covered by FEE-HELP of $46,622 (Students who may already have an accumulated HECS debt may incur additional costs)
Also, this course is designed to take 18 months, so it isn't spread over multiple years like a "normal" university course would be... the wording in the booklet would suggest all fees need to be paid upfront.

Might pay to contact CAE and have a chat with them... better to get the information direct from the horses mouth:
Who can I contact for more information?

Has anyone heard from Jetstar or CAE yet?

​​​​I made it to the final stage and still haven't received an email telling me if I was accepted or not

​​​​​​Has anyone who made it to the final stage of this year's mid year intake heard back as to whether they were accepted yet?
