Free STEM training for youth workers
Wellcome is offering free STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) training to youth workers this summer.
The training, which has been developed in partnership with the British Science Association, is taking place across the UK until 21 July 2016.
The two-day course is for youth workers who want to learn accessible, engaging and hands-on ways to engage young people with STEM subjects.
Valuable STEM skills can also support young people’s personal and social development.
Youth workers who take part will:
- learn about the value of STEM skills
- develop skills and confidence to include STEM activities in their programmes
- find out about national STEM opportunities and initiatives
- develop their own STEM action plan for implementation.
