What is Routes into STEM?

Routes is an innovative 3 day course which provides young people aged 13 to 15 (Y9 & 10) with a fantastic opportunity to compare both university and apprenticeship pathways into STEM CareersThe course allows students to gain firsthand experience of life at college, university and within a company, spending 1 day at each. Students are also given opportunities to tap into a network of role models within each organisation; talking to apprentices, undergraduates, graduates and professionals, asking questions and gaining crucial insights in order to help shape their own futures.


Routes into STEM focuses on the following outcomes for participants:

  1. Increasing career pathway awareness
  2. Improving personal learning and thinking skills
  3. Improving employability




Generating Local Cross Industry Collaboration

For each course we work with multiple schools & 3 local delivery partners; a college, a university and a STEM company. This cross industry enagement allows us to create local collaboration opportunities before during and after the delivery of a course. Since the begining of the programme we have engaged nearly 400 organisations.
