Our supporters

To help us achieve our vision, we work with a number of partners and supporters to ensure that teachers, technicians and other educators get the best possible support.

Our partners

Department for Education, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Wellcome Trust

The National STEM Learning Network is a joint initiative by the Department for Education, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and The Wellcome Trust. STEM Learning was set up in direct response to concerns about the engagement of young people in science but has since grown to incorporate all STEM subjects.

Gatsby Charitable Foundation

The Gatsby Charitable Foundation funds the creation and expansion of our resources and online collaboration tools to promote peer-to-peer support across STEM education and to house the UK's largest collection of STEM teaching and learning resources.


Project ENTHUSE is a funding partnership promoting inspired teaching of STEM subjects through impactful CPD. This is supported by the Department for Education, Wellcome, BAE Systems, Biochemical Society, BP, IBM, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Rolls-Royce, The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Shareholder universities

STEM Learning is an initiative of the White Rose University Consortium (comprising the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York) and Sheffield Hallam University.

Our supporters

CPD partners

We work with partners to create and deliver high impact, high-quality professional development activities. These partnerships ensure that we deliver relevant CPD that meets the needs of teachers, young people and our partners.

Resource partners

Our resource partners play a key role in helping us to create and maintain our collection of online and physical resources, which is unique to the UK. Generous donations from a wide range of publishers and suppliers enable us to offer high-quality resources for those seeking support in STEM education.


Made up of some of the most dedicated and active teachers and technicians, this group works with us to support, advise and promote our work.


Our freelance consultants contribute their expertise to our diverse range of programmes. All of the consultants we work with are quality assured and must attend initial training with us before being added to our database.

LINKS project

We work with partners across nine institutions in Austria, Finland, France, Italy and the United Kingdom as part of the Erasmus scheme to enhance the achievement of pupils in STEM subjects.

The 5% Club

STEM Learning is proud to be a member of the 5% Club and is committed to progressing their own apprentices and trainees through paid to learn opportunities. STEM Learning shares their knowledge and opportunities with businesses associated with the 5% Club to enable wider communities to engage with young people through STEM Learning's projects and programmes.
