APRIL & MAY COURSES NOW OPEN! Apply Now!!

Are you a Year 10 student interested in exploring Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths further?
Take a look below for our May courses. 

 

Not sure what Route to take?  Then Routes into STEM is for you, and here's why:

 

                   

 “I liked the introduction to apprenticeships because I did not understand what it was before the course and now I might consider applying for one.”

 

“I met new people who also want to be engineers. I learnt about college, university and what work life is about.”

 

 “It's helped me to see that there are more careers in STEM areas than I first thought, and that I can now consider other routes into my future careers that before the course I wouldn't have considered."

 

"Routes into STEM has encouraged me to do my own research into different careers in STEM areas and I am now considering other careers that I might like to do in the future that I hadn't even heard of before the course.”

 

   “I enjoyed learning particular skills, like building pneumatic circuits and programming robots.”

     

"I am now more experienced and can make an informed decision about my future career"
