Inspiring Aviation Campaign – Reach for the Sky

8 July 2021

Programme run by the Department for Transport in partnership with the CAA

Earlier this year, as part of the Reach for the Sky programme, Department for Transport partnered with Education and Employers to deliver a new ‘Inspiring Aviation’ campaign. The campaign aims to recruit 1,000+ volunteers from the aviation and aerospace industries and connect these employees from the world of work with state-run primary, secondary schools and colleges.

At the heart of the campaign are volunteers talking about their jobs, sharing their inspirational career journeys, sparking imaginations and enabling young people to interact with career role models within aviation. We’re keen to engage a wide range of diverse volunteers from across aviationto demonstrate the breath of roles that exist. The campaign is open to anyone within the sector.

If you can give at least one hour of your time, then become a volunteer by signing up to the campaign today and help inspire the next generation of future aviation leaders. With the restrictions and impacts of Covid-19 remaining for the foreseeable future, the majority of interactions and volunteer opportunities will be held virtually.

The pandemic has placed the aviation industry in unprecedented territory and created a very difficult environment for those working in the sector. Despite these significant challenges one thing does remain unchanged – it is crucial for the long-term future success of the industry that we inspire and educate young people about the breadth of roles available in the sector.   If you’re interested in taking part, you can read more about the programme on the campaign page, and through the attached e-flyer.
