Cornwall EBP is inviting representatives from the world of work and further/higher education (FE/HE) to take part in careers-related schools outreach events for the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) to show the relevance of chemistry/STEM in a broad range of jobs.
Building on the successful ‘Chemistry at Work’ programme run in previous years, these events aim to:
For business representatives, FE/HE, RSC or STEM ambassadors it will be an opportunity to: engage with the next generation and inspire young people with the opportunities Chemistry/STEM studies can bring; give young people an insight into the world of work and the skills and knowledge businesses value; forge links with local schools to make pupils and teachers aware of your business and sector; as professional development for employees or skill development for apprentices.
For pupils, it will be an opportunity to: participate in fun hands-on activities to learn how chemistry relates to different workplaces; see the direct relevance chemistry/STEM has in all sorts of jobs and careers; and engage with different people from the world of work and further/higher education.
For teachers, it will help to: motivate your pupils to learn Chemistry and STEM subjects, and understand its currency in the labour market; cement sustainable links between the school and industry partners; get up to date knowledge of the local labour market; provide information and opportunities to support teachers work in the classroom with support from the local RSC Education Co-ordinator.
