New downloadable activities, career guidance and an interactive career map are all new additions to our dedicated STEM website

Young people can access a range of material as we hit the relaunch button on a refreshed website. 

Why we have re-launched our website 

It has been recognised by the aviation community that there will be an anticipated shortage of skilled aviation professionals in the near future. Therefore, it is important we support the ambitions and interests of everyone to create opportunities which are inclusive and engaging for all. 

Our stem.caa.co.uk website encourages young people to explore the various careers, and direct them to foster the skills they need to pursue a career in aviation and aerospace.  

One of the standout features of our website is its user-friendly interface, which offers intuitive navigation and seamless access to a diverse range of resources.

Website resources 

We have collaborated with industry partners to help provide these resources. You will find: 

  • New aviation and aerospace themed Duke of Edinburgh activities. 
  • An interactive career map – explore the variety of careers within this industry. 
  • Downloadable activities for a variety of age groups including, aviation themed Minecraft games, aviation timeline, videos and challenges. 
  • Useful career guidance (Work Experience, Internships, Graduate programmes and Apprenticeship information). 
  • An overview of the role and the different capabilities of the Civil Aviation Authority. 
  • Information for applications for the Reach for the Sky Challenge fund. 

The resources here will aim to engage and encourage the diverse mindsets across the UK and work towards developing an innovative future for the sector. 

The importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in shaping aviation’s future cannot be overstated.

Our aim 

Our website serves as a comprehensive hub for career guidance and STEM resources for young people teachers and parents. 

As we embark on this exciting new chapter, this year we will engage with hundreds of schools and thousands of young people to encourage them embark on a career in our sector. 

Together, we can ensure that the skies remain safe, sustainable, and accessible for generations to come.
