Careers in Aviation Campaign Launch through Education and Employers

We are delighted to announce that we are launching a new campaign to inspire and educate children and young people on the range of opportunities within aviation. The ‘Inspiring Aviation’ campaign will be a part of our Inspiring the Future programme and is being funded by the Department for Transport’s Reach for the Sky initiative.  

Throughout 2024, the campaign will work towards: 

  • Inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals 
  • Reaching individuals who would otherwise not be aware of the opportunities available in the industry 
  • Having a broad impact by reaching and engaging as many young people as possible 

Inspiring Aviation will feature in-person and virtual activities for primary and secondary schools where volunteers from the industry will share their career stories, improve students’ knowledge of the world of work and help young people understand the importance of school subjects for future opportunities. 

Inspiring the Future are excited to invite professionals from the aviation industry with an interest in volunteering to take part. Help us to dismantle barriers and support young people in finding their future by signing up to volunteer from as little as an hour a year. 

Sign up for volunteers

For schools that want to expand their students’ aspirations and expose them to jobs they may never have considered, sign up to access our free Inspiring Aviation resources, events and volunteers.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
