What are STEM Skills?


• core knowledge and skills associated
  with science, technology, engineering
  and mathematics (STEM)

• scientific enquiry and application

• knowledge and skills relating to key
  disciplines

• relevant to the key economic sectors
  vital to North East England

• STEM appreciation and literacy
  amongst young people and adults
Energy and Low Carbon Technology



• NaREC, North East England’s Centre of
  Excellence in New and Renewable Energy, is
  dedicated to giving organisations in the Energy
  and Low Carbon Technology sector the support
  they need to transform winning ideas into
  commercial businesses

Healthcare and Life Sciences


• North East England's thriving healthcare and
  life sciences economy is worth around £4
  billion, home to approx. 5,000 related
  businesses

  in-north-east-england.html
 Chemicals


• One-fifth of the UK’s production capacity for process
  industries is based in the North East, including 58% of its
  petrochemical industry, 35% of its pharmaceuticals and a
  major share of its speciality chemicals sector.

• The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), the regional
  Centre of Excellence for the chemical sector is based in
  the Wilton Centre in Redcar, a 75-acre R&D park that is
  home to over 30 companies, including a number of
  multinationals.

  Advanced Manufacturing & Automotive


• The region possesses a long history of engineering excellence
  in advanced manufacturing

• Some of the world’s major automotive companies have been
  attracted to the North East to take advantage of the skilled
  and flexible workforce. Recent advances include the
  expansion of low-carbon electric vehicle testing and
  manufacturing facilities.

• The Printable Electronics Technology Centre (PETEC) is
  putting the region at the forefront of revolutionary ‘flexible’
  plastic electronics technology.

Digital Media and Animation


• Over the past three years, North East England has had
  the highest number of new technology start-ups in the
  digital media and animation field, outside London

• The region’s Digital Media and Animation cluster is
  primarily focused around the Tees Valley

• The sector is supported by Codeworks, a centre of
  excellence for digital innovation, developing new and
  existing digital media technology companies in the
  region.

Why are STEM Skills important?


• All of these industries have a STEM focus and
  need a supply of skilled individuals – the
  workforce of the future

• A growing emphasis on these new industries
  (NINJA)

• Supply is not meeting demand (or projected
  future demand)

• How can we increase the supply of STEM
  educated individuals and promote the exciting
  STEM career opportunities on offer in the
  region?

Enquiry Based Curriculum: Developing a new enquiry based approach,
tailored to the needs of local learners and building on local, regional and
national initiatives to enable science to be taught in a more stimulating
and innovative way.
The development of a curriculum framework to describe the enquiry
process is essential.

Increasing participation in continuing professional development
(CPD): The main focus of CPD for the SEIP’s is to update the science
knowledge of teachers within primary and secondary and further
education, whilst supporting the development of the enquiry based
curriculum.

Careers - Learning and employment: The maintenance and
development of a science base is vital to the economy. SEIP’s can
encourage students to study STEM subjects and to be aware
