The STEM Insight programme offers staff in schools and colleges a unique chance to experience STEM-related work in industrial or university settings.
Participate in a placement with either an employer or a university, be supported by face-to-face and online CPD, and learn more about diverse career paths and opportunities for students. You will receive generous financial support to cover the cost of participating in the programme from Project ENTHUSE.
