The workshop’s aim is to assist secondary schools to start and sustain STEM subject clubs through their first 18 months, providing valuable information that will support and guide club leaders. The workshop is for teachers or technicians from secondary schools, Sixth Form and FE colleges across England with KS3, KS4 or KS5 provision. This regionally based face to face course lasts approximately 2 hours and enables course attendees to network, share ideas and best practice.  The workshop includes practical club activities to try.
