Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) - A UK Crisis

Outline

Free to those who have purchased the Governor training SLA from 2017-2018

Description

An understanding of the UK STEM Skills gap and how to engage teachers, young people and parents in developing their enthusiasm and understanding of how essential Science and Maths is for society.

To raise awareness of FREE opportunities for schools to engage with employers and STEM partners, and to break down stereotypes around STEM jobs. Students make their minds up about the types of people that do certain jobs i.e. engineers, by the age of 7 years old so find out ways to challenge these perceptions and work to raise attainment and enthusiasm for STEM from Early Years and beyond.
