Science and Technology Committee (Commons)
Accepting written submissions.
Throughout its recent inquiries, the Science and Technology Committee has repeatedly received evidence that the UK is facing STEM skill shortages, often in key growth sectors, like big data.
The Committee therefore invites written evidence on measures that organisations, businesses, schools, colleges and individuals have taken to close the STEM skills gap. These could include, but are not limited to, apprenticeships, vocational courses, mentoring, teacher placements in industry and establishing links between business and schools/colleges.
Evidence given by Yvonne Baker, Chief Executive Officer, STEM Learning UK, Paul Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, EngineeringUK, and Philip Pratley, Director, Trade and External Relations, Leonardo; Dr Kirsty Clode, Chair, Women into Manufacturing and Engineering, Blossom Hill, BAE Systems' UK Apprentice of the Year 2016, and Mark Page, Your Life Advisory Board Member and Managing Partner, A.T. Kearney
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
