STEM Careers Toolkit for Careers Leaders : Secondary schools and Colleges 

The STEM Careers Toolkit for Careers Leaders in secondary schools and colleges is filled with creative ideas and practical suggestions on how to build STEM specific content into your careers strategy.

Working through each Gatsby Careers Benchmark, it provides a range of resources, strategies and activity suggestions that will support Careers Leaders to develop a strategic approach to STEM careers education, contributing to the Gatsby Career Benchmarks.

The toolkit consists of:

1) Guidance on developing STEM within a careers strategy, supporting all 8 Gatsby Benchmarks

2) Print friendly guidance for each Benchmark

3) Training for teaching staff, designed to increase awareness of STEM career learning
