STEM Learning

There is a clear urgent need to address the challenges of climate change. The transition to a low carbon economy will be key in ensuring continued economic growth whilst addressing these challenges. This transition has already begun, in the UK alone there are over 400,000 jobs in low carbon businesses and their supply chains. The number of such jobs is expected to grow, the government has set an ambitious target for two million green jobs in the UK by 2030.

The government’s green jobs taskforce identified the ‘clear pathway into good green careers’ as being one of the pillars to a lower carbon economy. By working with the National Careers Week, UK Space Agency, Department for Education and the Department for Work and Pensions we are supporting students’ and teachers’ awareness of these future-focused careers. Ensuring that young people have the best opportunity to succeed, and the economy has the skills required to successfully transition to low carbon economy.

About Us

At STEM Learning, we are committed to the power of STEM education and its ability to change lives. Whether through delivering teacher CPD (continuing professional development) in STEM subjects, bringing STEM role models into schools as part of the STEM Ambassadors programme or providing bespoke, long-term support for groups of schools in collaboration with companies through our ENTHUSE Partnerships, our aim remains unchanged – to provide a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK and to raise awareness of STEM careers.

We work in collaboration with the UK government, employers large and small, organisations and educational establishments to deliver positive STEM interactions for teachers, young people and beyond.
