Evidence suggests that the BAE Systems-RAF team that visits primary and secondary schools ostensibly to encourage students to take an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, gives students a sanitised, glamourised image of both BAE and the RAF.

A video suggests that the arms company BAE Systems’ team that, in partnership with RAF Careers, visits primary and secondary schools, ostensibly to encourage students to take an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, gives students a sanitised, glamourised image of both employers during their visits to schools.

The repeated mentions on the team’s Twitter feed of ‘@RAF_Recruitment’ further undermine the military’s assertions that their ‘schools engagement’ is not ‘recruitment’.
