1. Share with your school’s careers advisor:
It’s predicted that 75% of the careers of the future will require STEM skills – STEM jobs are growing at a faster rate than non-STEM jobs and people with STEM qualifications face lower rates of unemployment than the rest of the population. Don’t let your students miss out on these opportunities, inform and inspire them about the STEM careers of the future.
