Considering the vocational way for a STEM career 30/05/2017


In the first instance, deciding to study a STEM course is, in itself, spot-on. In a world that's becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with that knowledge, it's more important than ever for learners to leave College equipped with the qualifications and practical skills to be at the forefront of STEM innovation.

Why take this route?

  • At the professional level there will be an increasing demand from science industries over the next 10 years for individuals educated to degree and postgraduate level.

  • Research from Engineering UK suggests that 182,000 additional workers are needed i.e. engineering-focussed graduates and apprentice positions every year until 2022.

  • Greater London and Harrow have more STEM jobs than England and Wales overall in all the categories apart from STEM supporting occupations.

  • Science industries will need to recruit significantly more science apprentices to meet workforce demand over the next 10 years.

  • The UK's digital economy is recognised as one of the strongest globally.
