Work-related learning within an industry and enterprise context is at the core of the Go4SET experience.
EDT’s Go4SET project is typically 10 weeks and offers young people in Years 8/9 or S1/S2 (Scottish equivalent) the opportunity to develop skills, inform subject choice and change perceptions about STEM, raising awareness of how studying these subjects can lead to a rewarding career.
The UK needs to increase the number of pupils pursuing careers in Science, Engineering and Technology.
Support from Industry and business is sought for this initiative and can help to make an important contribution to the future of STEM through inspiring pupils to become involved at this key stage in their education. Work-related learning within an industry and enterprise context is at the core of the Go4SET experience.
Research has shown that the exposure of younger age groups to STEM related employers, encourages more students to choose post-16 courses in these subject areas, eventually leading to the study of STEM degrees at university.
The project includes a launch event, a company visit, and culminates in a celebration at the Industrial Cadets Graduation Day.
Go4SET is accredited at Industrial Cadets Bronze level.
