Parents - what can EDT offer?

We are an nationwide education charity providing opportunities for young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). 

We help students make informed choices about their future.

If you have a child/dependent who is between 11 and 21 – they could take part in one of EDT’s work related learning schemes to help with course and career choices.
