Overview

Are you enthusiastic about STEM and want to share your enthusiasm with others? Have you always wanted to make a real and positive impact on the education of young people and adults? Are you somebody who wants to make a difference to the world by educating others on how STEM impacts on our lives?

The Education for STEM degree will prepare you to become a competent, thoughtful, reflective and innovative practitioner, and will develop the subject-specific knowledge and skills to allow progression to PGCE routes of study for those wishing to train to be a STEM teacher.

The STEM course has a placement opportunity in each of the three years of study so that you can relate what you have been taught to a real-world situation. The placements will be undertaken in a number of different environments including the community, school, industry and an international placement in the final year. Please note this course starts in September 2020.

Career opportunities

The School of Education, Early Years and Social Work take great pride in the outstanding success it has demonstrated with progression into employment with an average trend of 97% engaged in employment post-course. This course has been designed to reflect and address the market shortages across STEM. The established delivery team has a proven record of developing the highest standards of graduates.

Graduate prospects have traditionally been high with many of the students being offered employment following their placement. The course prepares students to consider diversifying their subject base underpinned by pedagogy to enhance their employability

Graduates will have the opportunity to explore STEM within an educational context across different environments. The School prides itself on the employability of its graduates and their long-term resilience of both staying within the sector as well as being promoted to roles of responsibility in a short time frame after graduation. Post course, there are a number of potential progression routes that would be available and have been considered during the course design to ensure their availability and viability: Employment across the STEM sector e.g. Regional STEM programme coordinator for education charity; STEM graduate Teaching Assistant; STEM coordinator; Education officer; Public affairs and campaign manager (STEM promotion); Bid coordinator (corporate responsibility); Education policy advisor; Education and training coordinator.

Employment opportunities within the wider field of education, e.g. community education, charities; teaching in institutions where QTS is not required, e.g. academies, Teach First and international schools. What’s more, international opportunities could arise after the international placement.
