• STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and 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 that are available in aviation along with the skills and knowledge that someone looking to enter into the sector could require.

    How we can support you 

    Our people have been supporting STEM initiatives for many years and our STEM affinity network brings interested colleagues together to work as one effective team, providing support to schools and wider education.

    We can offer:

    • Talks and aviation activity sessions at primary and secondary schools
    • Focused career advice for college students
    • Participation at career fairs or events

    If you would like our involvement in an event then please contact our STEM coordinator: brenda.jefcoate@caa.co.uk

    We provide STEM activities to try out in schools or at home. They aim to show how aircraft and aviation works. They can be used individually or as part of a wider lesson. You can download current activities here.

    2020 Girls in Aviation Day

    26 September 2020 is world Girls in Aviation Day. We are committed to supporting women in aviation and encouraging young girls to pursue interests in STEM.

    As we were unable to visit schools this year, we have gathered together our colleagues and other STEM ambassadors to share inspiring stories in this video.
