Linking the Curriculum to the World of Work
‘Why are we focussing on STEM for our inspiration events?’
I asked that question at the beginning of our STEM in the World of Work day today. They were all pretty clear that maths and English applied to everyone in the room but STEM? Isn’t that just for geeky people? Well of course it very much isn’t. In fact most businesses I work with are very keen on an understanding of STEM either directly related to the work that their employees do or peripherally in terms of the technology skills that they expect.
Northshore, Abbey Hill and Rye Hills had a great day working with support from Analox, Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, James Cook Speech and Language Unit , Health Education England and TTE. A huge range of sectors all linked by STEM and a wide range of different activities to be inspired by. Thank you massively to all our company supporters yet again.
