Employers: You can Inspire the Next STEM Generation!
Inspire young people to gain STEM skills through research by hosting a Nuffield Research Placement.
Think back to when you were seventeen...
What did you know about careers?
How did you get where you are today?
It’s likely there were key individuals and experiences that motivated and inspired you, and it’s those experiences that we want to give to young people through Nuffield Research Placements.
Nuffield Research Placements give young people from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to gain skills and confidence in science and research. They are provided by the Nuffield Foundation as part of its mission to improve social well-being and educational opportunity across the UK and an independent evaluation has shown them to increase access to university courses in STEM subjects.
Benefits of hosting a student:
– Support young people and diversify your workforce
– Provide your staff with opportunities to apply and develop their coaching, mentoring and management skills
– Students are bright, capable and can complete a variety of tasks including data analysis, scoping and experimental design
– Fulfil your public engagement, widening participation and corporate and social responsibility goals
– Forge strong links with schools and colleges in your local area
