The UK has a shortage of technicians and without significant and sustained action this shortage will worsen in the coming decades, threatening our future economic prosperity.
We are committed to strengthening science and engineering skills within the UK workforce. We seek to achieve this by devising and enabling innovative proof-of-principle programmes, encouraging partnerships and informing national education policy.
We currently concentrate our resources on the three focus areas below where we feel that Gatsby, working independently or with other organisations, can make a significant and sustainable difference.

We support science in secondary schools and colleges through initiatives which encourage innovation and engaging practical activity in science lessons and STEM clubs and by piloting new approaches to teacher recruitment and professional development.
