New STEM Jobs in Aviation Initiative Launched
Rt Hon Grant Shapps, MP for Welwyn Hatfield, joined the All Party Parliamentary Group on General Aviation (APPG-GA) to launch its new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Jobs and Skills working group, on Wednesday October 23.
Launched by the APPG-GA’s Ambassador Carol Vorderman, the STEM Jobs and Skills Working Group will educate Parliament and Government, carry out research and propose policy designed to further the aims of promoting high-tech STEM related aviation jobs throughout the UK.
Carol Voderman said: “With the ever more advanced world in which we are living, there has never been a more important time to promote STEM Jobs and Skills. It is a necessity to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of not only general aviation but aviation on the whole. I wholly support the STEM working Group and the APPG in advancing aviation and I look forward to working with them in the future.”
Robert Courts MP said: “I welcome the creation of the STEM Jobs and Skills working group. The aim of the working group to propose policy to further high-tech jobs is not only good for the economy of Welwyn Hatfield but also the protection and growth of UK aviation.”
The All Party Parliamentary Group on General Aviation (APPG-GA) is the largest APPG in Parliament with 174 named members. With MPs and Lords from the five major parties, the APPG-GA focuses on promoting jobs and growth through General Aviation in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
