Good Timing: Implementing STEM Careers Strategy in Secondary Schools

Rate this resource

This is the final report of the STEM Careers Awareness Timeline Pilot, published in 2011. The programme was commissioned by the Department for Education and sought to explore the potential to embed STEM careers awareness and activities in Key Stage Three education. The Timeline Project identified several factors associated with a successful STEM careers school. From this, two strategic planning tools were developed - the STEM Manager and STEM Planner.

These tools were developed to help schools to establish an environment in which STEM careers can flourish, and to support schools in producing a timeline of enhancement activity, balanced across STEM subjects and through Key Stage Three and are available in the online resource collection. The Good Timing report describes the findings of the project, reporting on the state of careers education in schools, the support it receives and the value placed on it, and the attitudes and abilities of teachers to include careers learning in their enrichment and enhancement activities. The report goes on to give seven key recommendations.
