What is Soaring to Success ®?

Soaring to Success® is a careers enrichment programme for schools that bridges the gap between education and industry. It aims to inspire, enable, and support the next generation to consider a career within aviation and aerospace. The programme also aims to increase ambitions and social mobility through inspirational activities. The Air League achieves this through showing young people that these opportunities and possibilities are accessible and achievable by anyone.

What’s involved?

Designed for students in state-funded education, the programme complements existing career provisions by working alongside schools to provide accessible, in-depth information and knowledge that showcases the vast range of incredible roles and opportunities available. 

Delivered across the academic year with support from industry, the staged programme includes career conferences and e-learning modules that provide an overview and insight into the career pathways available. The programme concludes with further enhanced career and skill workshops, combined with air experience days. 

Stage One

Through our online careers conferences, designed for young people aged 13-17, we aim to showcase the vast range of incredible roles and opportunities available within UK aviation, aerospace, and space.

Stage Two

Through our industry-led and academically designed e-learning courses, completed through our learning management system, individuals are given an in-depth understanding and further insight into the roles and pathways available. Courses cover employability skills, principles of flight, cybersecurity, propulsion, drones, and remotely piloted aircraft systems.

Stage Three

Individuals who successfully complete stages one and two may then be given the opportunity to progress onto further Soaring to Success® Workshops or Experience Days, therefore experiencing first-hand the different aspects of aviation and the opportunities available.
