Women into STEM
The project – which is led by West College Scotland in partnership with Forth Valley College and Equate Scotland – is gearing up for an exciting second phase after a full year of encouraging more female representation into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics roles.!
“The Women into STEM project aims to develop local solutions to support more young women into engineering by understanding the pathways, challenges and barriers women face in addition to recruiting and supporting women aged 16-24 into STEM careers including Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships.Laura Smith-Gulliver, Training and Development Manager, Equate
What our partners say
Over the course of four weeks of the virtual STEM workshops, I delivered workshops to support the girls in developing a marketing campaign that would encourage more young women into STEM based careers. It was a delight to work with these fantastic, driven young women through the project and I was so impressed by the levels of dedication, creativity and enthusiasm shown. The final marketing campaigns were of a high standard; I think this demonstrates why getting young people themselves to create messaging that will attract their peers is so valuable. Who better to influence girls interested in STEM than their peers?Morven McColl
