We are looking for exciting and dynamic companies to help us tackle the current UK STEM skills crisis by offering students a memorable ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience to highlight the wealth of careers that are available to those with Maths and Science skills.

UK STEM skills crisis

  • Thousands of STEM roles across the UK are lying vacant
  • Yet fewer than 1 in 7 students are choosing STEM subjects at A Level or equivalent
  • We need to EXCITE the next generation of employees about STEM careers

 

This year we have been awarded a grant by the Careers and Enterprise Company to run Best School Trips in specific areas across England so if you’re an employer in one of the following areas.

·       Liverpool ·       North East
·       Manchester ·       Tees Valley
·       London ·       Black Country
