During that time, we have created a range of video and online resources produced that are designed to inspire and give some light-hearted food for thought.Each of the clips on this page features a role model from the world of aviation and other industries and will give some reflections on important life skills.The videos are based on JET’s Blue Skies youth programme, where young people will learn soft skills such as communication, teamwork, resilience and goal setting.
