Business Breakfast: Engaging with SEND pupils to enrich your STEM talent pipeline
Diversity and Inclusion are priorities for organisations. Join STEM Learning to discuss how you can effectively engage with SEND young people.
The theme of STEM Learning’s latest business breakfast will be diversity and inclusion with a focus on SEND.
“Our business partners tell us that what is of major importance to them is enriching their talent pool with a more diverse workforce so that it truly reflects the communities we live in. Diversity and inclusion are high on the agenda with engaging young people with special educational needs and disabilities becoming an increasingly important part of their strategies.”
This breakfast session will enable those who attend to:
- gain a greater understanding of the struggles young people living with SEND and the schools they attend face
- hear about how STEM Learning and their partners can support business to understand the complexities and the opportunities that engaging with SEND pupils can bring
- learn how employers can engage through our various programmes – Ambassadors, ENTHUSE Partnerships etc. to engage and inspire these young people as to the possibilities STEM subjects and careers can bring
- recognise that ‘aspiration’ is as important to SEND pupils as it is to any other young person
The panel will be made up of representatives from STEM Learning, business and education who will lead the discussion, share best practice and ideas for all to take away.
