Why Support STEM Education?
Would you like your company to play a role in increasing young people’s interest and aspiration in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers?
Can the skills and experience of your organisation help you to avoid a potential skills gap in your future workforce?
Are you looking for extra development opportunities for your employees?
Would you like to strengthen your organisation's reputation and give something back to your local community?
Working with schools and young people in your area offers so many benefits and advantages to both your employees and your organisation - but first and foremost you are helping to broaden the outlook of young people to better understand the vast and diverse range of opportunities available to them should they choose to follow a STEM related career.
