Linking Curriculum Learning to STEM Careers

National STEM Learning Centre via FutureLearn

Overview

How will you develop your students’ career aspirations?

Enhance your role as a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) subject teacher by linking curriculum learning to careers. Through weekly tasks, you will identify how to adapt your STEM curriculum, bring in real-world contexts, work with STEM professionals and engage your students in careers linked to their classroom learning.

Learn from experienced educators who have adapted their teaching, worked with employers and collaborated with local STEM Ambassadors to create a careers-linked curriculum that both engages and inspires students within the STEM subjects.

This course has been designed for both secondary teachers and further education lecturers, with case studies and specific activities for each sector. This course is for all teachers, to enable you to embed careers learning in your classroom teaching. It is not a careers leadership course, however careers leads may find this course useful to support school and college strategies.

Our focus is on the UK STEM sector, however, we will be presenting the need for skilled work in STEM careers, reference the practise of employers through STEM volunteers, and approaches equally applicable to other countries.
