This is a unique opportunity for students to engage with speakers from leading organisations and gain insight into the distinct career opportunities across the broad scope of the aviation and aerospace industries. This being the first stage of the Soaring to Success® programme, participating students can go on to access further e-learning and career information, and selected eligible students will have the opportunity to fly at one of our Air Experience Days in 2024.
During the four conference days, we will:
· Introduce the UK and worldwide aviation and aerospace industries.
· Spotlight varied job roles across industries, including examples in cargo transport, engineering disciplines, military flying, passenger transport, remotely piloted systems, space, and sport and leisure.
· Highlight opportunities to work in STEM, legal, logistical, financial, interpersonal, creative, and environmental roles.
· Identify routes and entry advice into early career pathways in aviation & aerospace.
Designed for a virtual audience with selected post-16, post-18 and graduate pathways, this conference is ideal for large-scale careers enrichment.
Soaring to Success® is the flagship outreach programme of the Air League: the UK’s leading aviation and aerospace charity. The programme is explicitly designed to introduce 13 to 17-year-old students with no former connection to aviation or aerospace industries to the wealth of employment options available and to provide a gateway to gaining meaningful and relevant industry experience.
