The Grand Challenges - Our Futures
The Grand Challenges – Our Futures programme aims to help young people develop the skills needed to bridge the gap between today’s learners and tomorrow’s career choices.
The Government’s Industrial Strategy sets out key Grand Challenge themes, aimed at putting the UK at the forefront of future industry. The four Grand Challenges – Artificial Intelligence, ageing society, clean growth and future mobility – are set to transform the way we live our everyday lives.
It is hoped that these Grand Challenges will bring Government, businesses and learning organisations together to make a real difference to people's lives.
In partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), we have developed this enrichment programme to improve people’s knowledge of future career opportunities, the types of STEM skills that are needed and how young people can gain those skills.
