STEM at The Prince's Trust
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are vital to the economic future of the UK, and STEM skills are more in demand than ever in the work place. Through our programmes, we aim to equip all Prince’s Trust young people with the STEM skills needed for employment.
We work with leading STEM sector partners to provide quality programmes and opportunities for young people.
We have reached over 4,000 young people with our STEM programmes, equipping them with the skills they need for the future.
STEM at The Prince's Trust has three key aims
- Help young people to develop important personal and social skills, such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication and teamwork
- Inspire young people and help raise their aspirations
- Open up opportunities for young people to enter STEM-related sectors and industries
STEM so far
We have introduced STEM opportunities across all our programmes. From app design to stargazing, and animation to kitchen science, we make sure our STEM activities are engaging and relevant, and help young people progress into education, employment or training opportunities.
We have worked with many fantastic partners such as those in the Technology Leadership Group and in the Internet and Media Leadership Group, providing STEM sector work experience and employment opportunities to young people.
Over the next three years, we are planning to scale up and pilot even more STEM opportunities such as new courses, traineeships, online workshops, and specialist STEM delivery staff in our regions.
