An employer’s guide to supporting STEM careers education in England
Support from employers is a vital part of all young people’s careers education.
This employer’s guide to STEM careers education explains how employer engagement can support secondary schools and colleges in England to deliver high-quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers education.
Since the introduction of the government’s Careers Strategy in 2017, schools, colleges and organisations from across England have been working towards building a high-quality careers system, underpinned by the eight Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance.
This guide provides ideas on how employer-supported STEM careers-themed activities can contribute to the eight Benchmarks, ensuring that an employer’s investment of time, effort and funding best meets the needs of schools and colleges.
