THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
It will be an opportunity for delegates to discuss the priorities and challenges for implementing the Scottish Government’s STEM education and training Strategy - aimed at supporting the drive to fulfil Scotland’s economic potential in areas such as engineering, life sciences and the tech sector.
Delegates will discuss key issues identified by the STEM Strategy including next steps for improving participation and changing perception towards STEM education and careers amongst underrepresented groups such as women and girls, ethnic minorities and disabled students.
Further sessions will focus on the initiatives designed to improve the delivery of STEM education within schools and colleges, including new pathways into teaching for STEM graduates and developing STEM literacy amongst the existing teaching workforce so that educators are better equipped to support students.
