Overview

The Government is consulting on our approach to delivering a high quality Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) education and training offering, across the education system. Our draft STEM Education and Training Strategy for Scotland has two aims:
1. To improve levels of STEM enthusiasm, skills, and knowledge in order to raise attainment and aspirations in learning, life and work
2. To encourage the uptake of more specialist STEM skills required to gain employment in the growing STEM sectors of the economy, through further study and training.
The Strategy proposes a number of areas in which new or scaled-up action can be taken, and seeks views on these.

Why We Are Consulting

The views gathered through the consultation will inform a final version of the Strategy for delivery.

We will publish a report on the consultation in March 2017. The findings will inform a final version of the Strategy for delivery.
