NEW Research Project launched

At the ASE conference last week, we launched our new research project called

Supporting career-related learning in classrooms using STEM Person of the Week.


We are now looking for teachers and schools to take part in the research project and try out the NUSTEM STEM Person of the Week (SPOTW) resources. Teachers can work in primary or secondary schools anywhere in the UK.

What are the possible benefits of taking part?

Each school will recieve a free set of printed SPOTW posters for each class or teacher taking part, and a powerpoint presentation to support the use of the posters.  Using the resources will help teachers to talk about careers with pupils, and link this to their science lessons.  Pupils will know more about some STEM jobs and the attributes they might need to work in those STEM jobs.

What will you do?

Teachers that take part in the research will complete an online survey about careers learning at the start of the project.  There will be a short webinar to explain a little bit more about the research and the resource at the beginning of March and then between 25th March and 14th June teachers will use the posters as part of their teaching and learning activities.  At the end of this, there will be a second online survey and, for some teachers, a short interview with Carol.

How to find out more?

Complete this Expression of Interest form by 31st January 2024.  After this deadline, Carol will contact you and let you know more details.
