STEM Insight

Education prepares students for life, not just exams. Teachers are one of the most important influencers of students’ career choices, but 82% think they lack the necessary knowledge to offer advice.

STEM Insight provides a unique opportunity for school or college staff to experience life in modern industry or a leading university to learn about the vast range of career opportunities and entry routes available to pupils studying STEM subjects.

Described as ‘professionally life-changing’, the five or ten-day placements equip teachers to bring careers to life in the classroom, inspire pupils, and enrich teaching using real world context.  

  • teachers

    Transform your careers knowledge, inspire your students, and enrich your subject teaching.

  • employers

    Host a STEM Insight placement to improve careers education in local schools and colleges and raise awareness of the skills your workforce needs.

  • universities

    Be part of STEM Insight and help teachers give better guidance to students about their learning and career paths.


“Before the programme I didn’t feel I had sufficient knowledge of STEM careers to talk with confidence. Now I am equipped with up-to-date knowledge, real examples and experiences, as well as strong industry links that I can use to benefit the whole school. I believe this makes me a more effective and inspiring teacher. This was a really valuable experience with long-term benefits”
Alice Kupara - STEM Insight participant
