The STEM Exchange
The STEM Exchange provides the mechanism for collaboration between STEM employers, STEM practitioners and those interested in a STEM career. This integrated approach provides tutors and teachers with an invaluable understanding of the skills needs of industry; those interested in a STEM career get essential industry insight; and employers benefit from a future talent pool that is equipped with the skills their business requires.
Over 1,200 employers – including large corporates such as Toyota, JCB, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Liebherr, as well as a wide range of smaller specialist suppliers – have already signed up to The STEM Exchange. They have opened their doors to practitioners, offering a number of diverse professional development opportunities – from a walk on the shop floor and introduction to the business through to bite-sized work shadowing and telephone advice. Could you do the same?
Why not take advantage of this great opportunity to get closer to your local employers and gain a real insight into their skills needs? This collaboration could prove invaluable and even open up doors to work experience opportunities for your students.
