Charter plan for aviation skills

A UK Aviation Skills Charter is to be introduced by the Aviation Skills Partnership (ASP) in a bid to create a common path for the various industry initiatives that are now under way, and feed into the DfT’s UK Aviation Strategy 2050 Green Paper.

The move follows the success of ASP’s Aviation Skills Manifesto launched in 2016 and sets out a five-point plan to meet what it calls the aviation skills crisis head-on by linking industry, educators, trainers, government, and regulators, among others.

ASP founder Simon Witts said: “I felt the time was right for the UK to re-establish its lead in aviation skills through a uniting initiative to bring together all the aspects of this exciting industry that needs to attract the attention of the next generation.

“We have a fantastic heritage and a buoyant aviation industry, alongside that of aerospace, and the Charter creates a vehicle to allow all organisations, whatever their role, to unite under a single banner to move forward swiftly.”

ASP is the organisation behind the world’s first International Aviation Academy at Norwich (IAA-N), a public-sector funded initiative opened in 2017 that integrates industry, educators and trainers to deliver the pathways that lead into the six areas of aviation.
