iSTEM+ an ETEP response to STEM Skills shortage 5-19
The Engineering & Technology Education Partnership, based at the IET, has developed a bottom-up strategy for an embedded approach to STEM through cross-curricular practical group projects at each Key Stage. This iSTEM+ approach fosters an integrated approach to STEM and other subjects, such as Computing, Geography, Health, Sports and Enterprise, which develops employability skills and is supported by a wider learning community. A regional iSTEM+ network can be grown through small clusters of `Skilful Schools' supporting each other. A model for funding through employers, Local Enterprise Partnerships, Industrial Partnerships, Government and charities is proposed. A presentation is available here.
