Background

STEM graduates are highly sought-after, well-rewarded with high salaries and yet employers still find it difficult to recruit staff with STEM expertise. With the gap between supply and demand for STEM graduates set to widen there is urgent need for action across Scotland’s education sector. To address the skills-gap the Scottish Government recently launched a consultation on their approach to delivering high quality STEM education & training, with a report on the consultation due in March.
