ENTHUSE Partnerships empower schools, colleges and employers to share practise and work collaboratively with the aim to achieve:
- Increased attainment in STEM subjects, narrowing the gap for disadvantaged students
- Increased interest in STEM careers: more students interested in working in STEM industries
- Increased understanding of STEM careers: more students aware of the qualifications and routes to progress in STEM
SSERC is currently leading two ENTHUSE partnerships in Scotland:
Bucksburn and Dyce learning communities in Aberdeen
The focus here is on building a consistent approach to maths and numeracy learning and teaching via a series of professional learning events for teaching staff in the primary and secondary schools in both clusters. The hope is that there is an increased achievement and attainment in numeracy for learners across primary and secondary. The partnership is supported by BP and La Salle Education
This partnership launched in early 2021 and is making excellent progress with our first professional learning event complete and plenty more in planning.
Shawlands, Cumbernauld and St Mungo’s Academies and Barrhead High School in the West of Scotland
Staff and pupils in these four secondary schools are working together with Jacobs, going on a journey of enhanced career-based learning, finding out the many STEM-linked opportunities and pathways that exist beyond school. As the learning takes place, young people in these schools will lead careers learning events to peers, gaining Young STEM Leaders Awards as a result.
After extensive planning, this partnership will officially launch on 10th June 2021 and we are inviting those involved in STEM education to join us to find out more and meet our team.
