Lincolnshire youth charity launches education resource hub in partnership with the Red Arrows

Lincolnshire-based youth charity Jon Egging Trust (JET) today launched a free education resource hub, JET Inspired, in partnership with the Royal Airforce Aerobatic Team,  the Red Arrows.  

Aimed at teachers and youth leaders, JET Inspired brings to life the cornerstones of JET’s face to-face confidence-building programmes through the prism of the Red Arrows, with content  focussed on teamwork, leadership, communication and resilience. The digital hub was  developed in response to Covid-19 as a way to grant wider access to JET’s unique education  programmes.  

“As a charity, we work with schools and youth organisations to support young people who may be struggling to stay motivated and focussed at school, often because of the life challenges they’ve faced,” says JET CEO, Dr Emma Egging.  

“When the pandemic hit we were suddenly unable to support our students face-to-face so  we knew we needed to take an innovative approach to reach out to existing students as  well as expanding our reach to new schools.” 

JET Inspired offers access to a series of dynamic behind-the-scenes films which explore how  the skills and techniques used by the Red Arrows to deliver their breathtaking displays can be  translated into the classroom. Each video is accompanied by free-to-download lesson plans,  activities and resources aligned to Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 of the PSHE National Curriculum. 

The digital build was supported by aerospace leaders Northrop Grumman who have also  helped deliver inspirational outreach days to local JET students at RAF Waddington since  2014.  

“We’re passionate believers in the extraordinary value of keeping young people inspired and  engaged in education; a challenge made all the more difficult by the impact of Covid-19 on 

children’s lives. As long-time supporters of the Jon Egging Trust, we’re delighted to be backing  this important initiative,” says Nick Chaffey, Chief Executive, UK, Europe and Middle East,  Northrop Grumman. 

During the official launch of JET Inspired at RAF Scampton today, local JET students took part  in a series of leadership activities with the current Red Arrows team, before having the  opportunity to watch a full practice of the Reds’ new 2021 display.
