Soaring to Success is a national project supported by the Department for Transport and Boeing UK. The programme not only inspires, stimulates, and encourages young individuals to consider a career within aviation and aerospace, but also acts as a catalyst to spark the inspiration and realisation that this is an opportunity and possibility that is accessible.
The Soaring to Success pilot project was launched in summer 2019 and took place in South Yorkshire in association with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. In 2020, Soaring to Success launched in South Essex in association with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council with additional funding from the Department for Transport.
The 2021 scheme is underway and will see over 4000 young individuals take part in interactive career workshops or glider taster days throughout the United Kingdom.
