What is STEM and why does it matter?
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is the umbrella term used to cover work promoting those subjects in education and to young people. Our work in the area is primarily about promoting the broad range of exciting jobs and careers that are available in aviation along with the skills and knowledge that someone looking to enter into the sector could require.
It has been recognised by the aviation community that there will be an anticipated shortage of skilled aviation professionals in the near future.
By promoting awareness of the aviation and aerospace sector, the variety of career pathways you can take and the subjects that help you get there we aim to inspire young aviators into this industry.
