Today’s modern RAF is a highly respected inclusive organisation made up of full-time Regulars and spare-time Reserves working side-by-side to make a difference. The RAF has over 50 available roles and multiple career development opportunities. Regardless of role the RAF believes in life-long learning so our personnel are trained to the highest standards. As well as having the opportunity to gain professional qualifications that will equip them for a great career after the RAF, they can look forward to having their talents recognised, developed and rewarded. We offer a number of sponsorships and scholarships to support exceptional individuals who want to join the RAF. These range from covering the cost of sixth form college to a bursary or cadetship while at university. Alternatively, as an apprentice in the RAF, recruits gain OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ qualifications as part of a challenging and unique career. Not only do they gain a civilian recognised professional qualification, but also have a guaranteed job in their chosen field. RAF Apprentices receive the very best training and accelerated pay, and as well as getting paid to learn, and can join directly from school as young as 16 years of age, in line with DfE Young People statutory guidance.
