The RAF is a highly technical service with more than 50% of its workforce comprised of engineers and engineer technicians. Using our network of over 500 RAF STEM Ambassadors we are committed to informing, inspiring and enabling young people to study STEM subjects and understand the breadth of opportunities available to them in STEM related careers. This work is distinct from recruitment and is free at the point of delivery. Our aspiration is to assist in the delivery of a future talent pool with the right skills and motivation that is reflective of the society we serve.

The RAF Youth and STEM Team run a national programme of STEM engagement that includes In School STEM Days (including live and online activities), Multi Activity Days, Competitions, Residential Courses and the development of downloadable learning resources.


The RAF Youth & STEM Team were delighted to catch up with Flt Lt Jonathan Webster-Jones who is currently seconded to the UK Space Agency. The Team were able to talk to Jonathan about his career journey to date and get some useful tips for young people aspiring to work in the Space Operations sector. The short interview can be accessed here:  Interview with Flt Lt Webster-Jones
