Soaring to Success® is aimed at 13–17-year-old students, particularly those with no former connection to aviation or aerospace industries. The programme is tailored to enrich existing Career Education Information Advice and Guidance through engagement, inspiration, and contact with employers and positive role models. Where possible, we would suggest that Stage 1 would be broadcast to whole year groups, in order to break down the barriers into the aviation and aerospace sector (in our experience participation in the Stage 1 Soaring to Success engagement opportunity encourages those without any previous interest in the aerospace sector to become involved). The programme is designed to be flexible in order to support your school’s needs.
This year the careers conference runs from Monday 20th to Friday 24th November. The week features presentations and Q&A Sessions with some of the aviation industries giants. Each session will be different but all count towards satisfying Gatsby benchmark 5 and the new Provider Access legislation.

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.Mrs A Spencer, John Taylor High School
