In late 2015 David Sainsbury was asked by government to chair a panel of experts that would provide clear recommendations for measures that would not only improve, but transform, technical education in England. The panel’s report was published alongside the government’s Post-16 Skills Plan in July 2016.
This report explores the mathematics in technical education by focussing on six countries: four European countries known to have strong vocational educational systems and well-documented STEM apprenticeship pathways (Germany, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland), and two Pacific Rim countries which are known to produce a strong cadre of STEM technicians (Singapore and South Korea).
We commissioned Dr Paul Lewis of King's College London to undertake a study of the roles, skills, and training of industrial biotechnology technicians in the UK. His final report, published in 2016, may be downloaded here.
This updated leaflet gives an overview of the work Gatsby is undertaking with a range of partners to address the acute shortage of technician skills in this country.
Key Indicators in STEM Education, draws together data spanning many years to show trends in the number of young people choosing science and maths at GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate level, as well as data on gender balance, apprenticeship uptake and teacher supply across STEM education.
We commissioned Professor Andy Hobson to establish what teacher mentoring stakeholders might learn from successful and effective practice in other sectors – in the UK and internationally.
