UKESF Skills Corner – October Edition

26th October 2020 | News

Each month UKESF CEO, Stewart Edmondson, will be writing a 'Skills Matter' feature which highlights the importance of skills within industry.

The most fundamental challenge we face is how to get more young people interested in STEM and, in particular, Electronics. As a Governor you can make a real difference to a whole school. Working from the inside, as it were, it is possible to shape the strategic direction of the school: to ensure STEM is embedded in pan-school activities and to promote engineering careers-related initiatives.  That is why I was delighted to see the Government’s campaign “Take A Closer Look”, encouraging Engineers to become school Governors. Engineers are well suited to the role of Governor and possess the skills and experiences that could really benefit a governing board. There is a growing number of schools actively seeking Engineers with skills and experience. If building a long-lasting, beneficial relationship with a local school appeals to you then please sign up here. Through the Inspiring Governance programme, they can match you with a school local to where you live or work.
