Why It Matters
We believe that supporting young people at formative stages of their careers is critical to address the UK’s STEM skills gap.
Without investment in STEM, businesses face a growing skills shortage as they struggle to recruit qualified workers in science, technology, engineering and mathematical fields.
Already one in five STEM businesses admit finding it difficult to recruit Engineering talent. STEMAccord is calling for businesses to join its efforts to inspire young people in local schools and colleges and help grow the future workforce.
What We Do
STEMAccord is founded on the concept of partnership and cooperation.
We believe that a coordinated approach is critical to inspiring future engineers and address the £1.5bn skills shortage in the UK STEM sector.
We work closely with Engineering UK’s national programme and exist to coordinate the work of our partners to deliver tailored STEM intervention in primary and secondary schools taking part in our regional pilot programme.
