SES13-19 Limited who delivers STEM services in the Black Country particularly in Walsall and Sandwell through Ian Crawford and Brian Martin have received Erasmus Plus funding to deliver a European STEM project with 4 other partners.
The SEE Project led by Zlinsky Kraj in the Czech Republic and involving partners from Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands and Turkey has identified the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) as a way to address unemployment, contribute to economic development and impact on inequalities within these vocational areas for women, those from minority backgrounds and those with disabilities.
The aim of the project is to promote STEM activity and associated careers across partners by enhancing the knowledge and skills of staff.
The project aims to deliver the up skilling and development of staff, the creation of new and powerful resources, the creation of a more innovative curriculum which will address inequality and recognise diversity, the improvement of life chances for young people and the sharing of good practice.
It commences in October 2015 and runs for 2 years. It will give some local teachers and those involved in STEM activity an opportunity to sample activity in the partner countries through learning raids as well as host delegates from partners in the UK.
Ian and Brian will keep you posted on developments through STEM network meetings in the Black Country and newsletters.
