STEM Ambassador Programme
Bosch have partnered with STEM Learning, the UK’s largest provider of education and careers support in STEM subjects
The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills shortage represents a real threat to the UK’s capacity for growth. Until 2024, 265,000 skilled entrants will be required annually to meet the demand for engineering enterprises That fact, combined with the reality that only 9% of the UK’s engineering and technology workforce are represented by women means we are committed to showing the next generation what a career in STEM has to offer.
The STEM Ambassador scheme is about developing relationships with schools and informing the next generation of employees about the range of opportunities that exist in areas such as science and engineering. This allows us to bridge the STEM skills gap and prepare our future generations for employment in these key fields.
This coming summer, STEM Ambassadors will be at the Big Bang Fair London West 2018. This is a very exciting event, with over 3,000 local students expected to attend. There will be multiple interactive workshops based around civil engineering and robotics. There will also be a number of shows throughout the day, and many chances for STEM ambassadors to discuss science, technology, engineering and maths with school children. Some of our associates will be attending the event and volunteering at the ‘Meet the Future You’ workshop, where they will be talking to young people about their careers at Bosch and the opportunities available in STEM industries!
