Students in Norfolk are to be offered Energy and Manufacturing work experience opportunities and STEM events via a new STEM Coordination Hub which will launch formally in May.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects are crucial for students considering career paths in certain sectors - like manufacturing and energy - and the new STEM Coordination Hub will be helping to encourage more young people to take an interest in them. Not only can this open doors for students to work towards qualified and well paid jobs, but hopefully it will address an identified talent gap that the region must fill in order to keep at the forefront of currently booming local sectors - like the offshore wind sector.
Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, the University of East Anglia, ScottishPower Renewables, Vattenfall, Nautilus Associates and charity The Bridge Trust are all behind the project and pushing to make it a success for our students and ultimately our economy.
