Electrical. Young Crossrail. The Young Crossrail programme works with schools and young people, particularly those closest to the route.

Young Crossrail

Through the activities in schools, work place visits and other events, volunteer Young Crossrail ambassadors aim to change perceptions of the engineering industry and encourage more young people, and particularly girls, to consider engineering and construction-related careers. Young Crossrail aligns with other programmes aimed at supporting young people into work and apprenticeships. Young Crossrail will help develop a pipeline of engineering and construction workers beyond the lifetime of the Crossrail project leaving a skills legacy for the future industry. Over 13,000 students, teachers and parents across 70 schools were engaged over the year and our volunteers have given over 1,200 hours of their time. Activities with partner schools included supporting teams for the Go4Set ‘Stations of the Future’ project and the First LEGO League robotics competition.

TEWeek. We need you to help inspire the next generation of engineers!


If you are an employer or engineer we want you to tell young people about your amazing job. If you're a school, college, university or parent, we want you to help young people to uncover their future in engineering. How? Semta - engineering skills for the future. National STEM Centre. Introducing the region London is the capital of England, and consequently Britain’s largest and most populous area, with a population of over 8.1 million people.

National STEM Centre

It is the second largest city in the world in terms of area, and is home to 100 of Europe’s top 500 companies. London has the largest Gross Domestic Product in Europe, and is very culturally diverse, with over 300 languages spoken across the city. Snapshot: STEM business and industry in the region. British Science Week 2016. 11 to 20 March 2016: Celebrating science, technology, engineering and maths.

British Science Week 2016

A ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths with events, experiments and activities across the UK. A great opportunity for people of all ages, areas and organisations to take part in science, engineering and technology activities. Each year there is a different theme for the week. Find out more from the British Science Week website >> Why not give your school's Science Week a global spin, with resources from the Global Dimension database?

Nuffield Research Placements. Nuffield Research Placements (previously Nuffield Science Bursaries) provide over 1,000 students each year with the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. Students in the first year of a post-16 science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) course are eligible to apply. Placements are available across the UK, in universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutions.

Nuffield Research Placements are administered at a regional level by a network of Nuffield coordinators. We particularly encourage students who don't have a family history of going to university or who attend schools in less well-off areas. We make sure no-one is excluded on a financial basis by covering students' travel costs. Applications for 2017 will open on Monday 24th October. About EES. The Engineering Education Scheme in England & Scotland is an EDT Programme which links teams of four Year 12 or S5/S6 students and their teacher with local companies to work on real, scientific, engineering and technological problems.

About EES

Students will also get the opportunity to compete for a British Association (BA) CREST Award. During their six-month project phase, students are encouraged to show industrial enterprise, creativity and innovation whilst gaining extensive experience of problem-solving, team-working and project management. All key Key life skills are developed within the context of the world of work. Personal development education realised through work related learning is at the core of this high quality educational enrichment scheme. For more information about the British Science Association (BSA) CREST Award please visit the BSA website - Science in schools. You can choose from our range of specially written shows, which we then present to audiences in your school hall or theatre.

Science in schools

We can put on a show for your local community (eg parents and families from the local area or feeder primary school families etc). This is a great way to show that your school emphasises and celebrates science. If it works better for your school, as an alternative to the evening show, we can provide a (max) 45-minute assembly for the whole school during the day. As part of the package, we also will provide a CPD session for up to 15 teachers (see below) to inspire and support them to bring hands-on science into the classroom. We will work with you to build a programme that suits your school's and teachers' needs. Example day 1.30pm Show for Key Stage 2 (or 3) 4pm – 5pm CPD session 6.30pm Show for local community*
