Promoting STEM Education through Teacher Training

Skills of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) are becoming increasingly important part in today’s society. STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth. Creating a solid STEM foundation through an integrated curriculum is the best way to ensure that students are exposed to science, technology, engineering and math maths throughout their educational career. It is also important for educators to have a skill set allowing them to inform students on STEM careers prospects, motivate them and to support them. The 5 days training course will focus on enriching STEM curriculum through innovative activities for students, available learning and teaching resources as well as enriching educator’s skills on engaging and motivating their students. The course will also explore the need to involve the local community and organisations. The course is ideal for educators who teach STEM and want to further enrich their lessons. The training as well could be adapted for the beginners who would like to implement STEM curriculum in their schools..

Note: This course is also available for groups of minimum 6 participants, for a tailor-made training at the agreed date.
