The STEM Exchange
The STEM Exchange web platform has been re-launched with a range of new features designed to facilitate even more opportunities for collaborative working between teachers and young people and industry.
The STEM Exchange acts as a matching service, providing teachers and young people (aged 14 and over) with the opportunity to access Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) experiences offered by employers.
Are you an employer in a STEM industry or looking for talent with STEM skills? Do you want to secure your STEM talent pipeline for the future? By signing up to the STEM Exchange, you can connect with local education providers, helping them to better understand what you do and how their students could progress into a career with you. You can offer opportunities from mentoring sessions to recruitment days, webinars to site visits – it's up to you!
You can also offer vital work experience and other STEM opportunities directly to the young people (aged 14 and over) signed up to the STEM Exchange, giving them the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of what it's really like to work in STEM.
Every employer in the engineering sector, large or small has a vital role to play in helping to secure the industry's future talent pipeline - and every industry engagement you can offer counts.
Are you a STEM teacher or tutor looking to give the young people you teach the very best start to their careers? Do you want to gain a better understanding of what a STEM career really looks like and what STEM industries there are in your local area?
By signing up for the STEM Exchange, you can link up with local employers, accessing opportunities from guided tours to webinars, from CPD workshops to access to online resources, such as training materials.
Are you interested in sound engineering for the music industry or developing green technologies? Maybe you'd like a career designing buildings or creating new software. Whatever your talent, whatever your interest, there's a career in STEM waiting for you! Sign up to the STEM Exchange now and you can access work experience, work shadowing, careers events, webinars and a whole host of other opportunities from across a whole range of STEM industries.
Getting work experience lets you see what these industries are really like to work in. It's also a great way to show your proactivity and to demonstrate your drive and enthusiasm to future employers.
