This case study describes how Priestley College promotes STEM subjects and careers to girls, through involvement in the Engineering Education Scheme (EES). The scheme, run by EDT, lasts six months and offers hands on experience for a group of four year twelve students who are studying maths and physics/chemistry.

The scheme links the students to a local company who set a project for the group. The project is usually based on something that really matters to them so the student’s ideas are often implemented at the end of the process.

Students are selected by application, informal reference from teaching staff and interview by staff responsible for EES (and involvement from Sellafield engineers). 

The resource includes details on how a school or college could set up a similar scheme.
