Nuffield Research Placements – Teacher Information Session
Our All About STEM website hosts our Student Introductory and Student Application Presentations, which teachers can use to introduce their Y12 students to the Nuffield Research Placement Programme. However, we realise you may have questions you want to ask too. Join this session for the chance to speak directly to our Nuffield team.
Nuffield Research Placements – Student Information Session
This session is for Y12 students (and their parents/carers) who have begun an application, or who are interested in applying, for the 2022 Nuffield Research Placement Programme. Join us to find out more about the programme or to ask any questions you have about the application process.
National Apprenticeship Week – Parents Evening
All About STEM deliver the ASK (Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge) Programme in the Wirral, Warrington, Knowsley and Cheshire regions on behalf of the Education and Skills Funding Agency, which is a part of the Department for Education.
As part of National Apprenticeship week and in partnership with local STEM Ambassadors this parents session will explain more about:
The range of apprenticeship job roles available
The different levels
How you find an apprenticeship
As parents and carers, we know that you are keen to hear about all options available to your child so that you can support them in their decision making.
What we’re going to cover is important because even if your child does already know what they’re planning to do after school – plans can change and so it is important that they are aware of all of the options available to them so that they can make the most informed decision for them. Apprenticeships have also changed significantly over the past few years and there are some brilliant opportunities available for your child. Through apprenticeships, you could even now achieve a degree if you wanted to, so come along to find out more!
Parents with children in all areas of the Merseyside and Cheshire region are welcome to attend and can be put in contact after the session with your local ASK representative.
Student CV Writing Workshop
All About STEM/All About Futures are providing a short CV writing workshop for interested pupils across the Merseyside and Cheshire Regions.
This information session will cover CV writing hints, tips and best practice with input from local employers/STEM Ambassadors. Pupils can register individually to join the after school session (KS4 and KS5). The session will include Q&A. This session is not just perfect for students applying or looking to apply for apprenticeships, but also those looking to build their CV skills and knowledge.
Nuffield Research Placements – Provider Information Session
This session is for individuals from academia or industry who are interested in, or planning to, host a Y12 student for a 2 week Nuffield Research Placement in Summer 2022. Join us to find out more about the programme and what is involved in hosting a student placement.
Creative ways to Engage and Work with Employers

Careers and enrichment in primary computing with STEM Ambassadors in your region
Children begin to make decisions about their future at a young age. To keep their options open, while starting to form ideas about future careers, it is vital they have authentic experiences with those working in a range of job roles. STEM Ambassadors are volunteers ready and willing to visit your school, for free, helping to dispel stereotypes, contextualise the computing curriculum and build subject knowledge among teachers and children. Join this short CPD session and plan how to build the cultural capital of children in your school, holding open the door to opportunity and future social mobility.
Overcoming barriers to future success in computing and STEM – find out what the evidence says about how children form their ideas and aspirations, and ensure that they don’t close-off possible futures.
Role models – consider the importance of ‘meeting people like me’ in computing careers
Make authentic links to computing and the wider curriculum – benefit from the life experience and knowledge of volunteers from across the world of work, in the technology industries and in digitally-enabled roles.
Develop an simple action plan – find out how easy it is to engage with a STEM Ambassador, and to evaluate the impact they have on children.
