Soaring 2 Success

Soaring 2 Success

This project is being offered to young people aged 14+ across South Essex by The Air League in partnership with South Essex Local Authorities, The Voluntary Sector and STEM Learning.

On the project young people will have the opportunity to learn about the careers available in the aviation sector through a range of activities and inspirational talks from industry professionals. Young people will also be invited to take part in a competition for a chance to win one of the 100 gliding experiences being offered as well as finding out how to apply for a scholarship after the project!

Virtual sessions will be run either in school, college or during other groups (for example young carers) and will also be recorded and made available to be completed at home.
