STEM Specialism

STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, previously Science, Math, Engineering, and Technology, is a term used to group together these academic disciplines
STEM Learning is the largest provider of education and careers support in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We work with schools, colleges and others working with young people across the UK.
Supported by a unique partnership of Government, charitable trusts and employers, STEM learning is dedicated to raising young people’s engagement and achievement in STEM subjects and careers.
Our vision
Our vision is to achieve a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK.
• Teachers of STEM subjects continually develop their STEM knowledge and experience, maximising their impact and own job satisfaction.
• Families and communities recognise the value of STEM to young people, encouraging and supporting them in STEM-related studies and careers
Our impact
Our work is underpinned by robust research into the impact of our programmes.
• Our impact evidence enables us to prove that our professional development has a direct impact on participants, the wider school or college, and ultimately young people.
• STEM Clubs offer young people valuable opportunities to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in an informal setting, allowing them to experiment, ask questions and tackle challenges that interest them.
• Research shows that STEM Clubs can have significant and measurable positive impacts on students, teachers and other leaders, and the schools or colleges themselves. This report summarises key findings from evaluation and research so far, along with pinpointing areas for future work.
• STEM Ambassadors bring a fresh and inspiring perspective to STEM lessons and careers information, and complement excellent teaching in schools and colleges.
Islamia Primary School is fortunate to have three STEM ambassadors from Imperial College London, working with the Year 5 children one day a week. This helps children to further develop their scientific knowledge and skills, in addition to raising aspirations. Each week they complete different experiments and hands on activities to enhance their learning.
