Future Stars partner with the RAF

Future Stars are proud to announce a partnership with the Royal Air Force.

The ethos of Future Stars charity to provide opportunities for young people which lead to education and or employment is shared by the Royal Air Force. Today’s modern Royal Air Force (RAF) is the UK’s aerial, peacekeeping and fighting force. The RAF offer a range of great opportunities for young people from varying academic backgrounds. Some require minimal qualifications; others require specialist skills, higher qualifications and/or a degree. The RAF has over 50 available roles and multiple career development opportunities, from Chefs and Photographers, to ICT Technicians and Pilots. The RAF also offer Ofsted Outstanding graded apprenticeships for many of their roles, followed by a guaranteed job at the end of each one. Young people will receive the very best training and as well as getting paid to learn, the chance to travel the world, play sport and perform a vital national role. Whatever your role, the RAF is committed to investing in every one of its truly valued personnel. To find out more about the different opportunities please click here.
