Our STEM Insight Weeks aim to inspire Year 10 and 11 students to pursue further education and STEM careers.

Our STEM Insight Weeks are run during half-terms. Each week is a busy schedule of interactive skills-based workshops and visits to local STEM employers and facilities.

Our workshops and skills sessions are aimed at providing the skills needed during higher education and the broader world of work, whether this is writing an up-to-date and engaging CV, how to find out about particular jobs and methods of work to suit individual students, or even mindfulness and stress management.

We also aim to offer a wide range of external business visits as well as insightful career advice from STEM workers – from an apprentice to the CEO.

To keep up-to-date with all of the activities we offer for secondary schools, please sign up to our newsletter here.
