At SSERC, we work in partnership with individuals and organisations who are committed to support STEM learning experiences in Scottish education. Our Education Industry Partners (EIPs) are a growing list of people who represent an increasingly diverse range of settings and specialisms, all with the shared value to develop and deliver inspirational and engaging STEM Learning opportunities for educators and their learners.
Taking part in an Education Industry Partnership with SSERC offers organisations the opportunity to innovate, creating fresh and impactful engagements in STEM. It is gives everyone involved the collaborative and creative space and time to ensure corporate social responsibilities are delivered with the greatest possible effects and outcomes.
We have a range of existing programmes for partners to choose from, meaning support can be instant and promptly launched into leaning communicates in Scotland and beyond. Alternatively, the team at SSERC will work with EIPs to create new and bespoke programmes, using everyone’s expertise and experience to create something truly unique.
Why get involved?
SSERC EIPs have the potential to bring together industry and education, enabling groups of early years, primary/secondary schools and colleges to improve young people’s engagement in STEM and so inspire them into subjects and careers which can assist with the future STEM skills shortage. With a SSERC EIP you gain a dedicated point of contact to facilitate the development of a strategic plan that meets Scottish Government National Outcomes whilst meeting the specific requirements of community benefit procurement clauses or support corporate social responsibility activities.

- Professional and careers-based learning for STEM educators
