Teacher CPD

STEM Skills

Practical activities



The STEM@WORK team provide a twilight training session for teachers to set up their own engineering projects in their school, with resources and practical support, empowering teachers with the knowledge and enthusiasm to get STEM working in their school.  


By signing up to this event you agree to attend the twilight training session and present engineering at work projects to a minimum of 10 students. If you cannot attend the training session you must notify STEM@WORK at least 2 weeks before the training course. Places are limited and by not attending you are denying another teacher and school the opportunity to provide STEM skills for their students. 

Only one kit (which includes 6 projects) is provided per school, but schools are welcome to have multiple teachers to represent them at the training session. Each teacher must fill in a pre and post questionnaire. 

In order to receive CPD, project kits and resources, each school must trial the project with a minimum of 10 students. Students must fill in an anonymous questionnaire which must be submitted to STEM@WORK by the required deadlines. 

As this project is about encouraging ALL students to take part in Engineering, we ask that schools consider equality when selecting 10 students, eg. an equal gender distribution. 

By registering for ENGINEERING@WORK you are agreeing to the terms and conditions mentioned above. Failure to comply with the terms and conditions will result in the school being invoiced for the CPD, resources, project kits and administration fees. 

“ENGINEERING@WORK project is a fantastic example of the kind of projects the EEGS scheme aims to promote. The UK is facing a critical engineering skills shortage and showing young people how creative and exciting engineering can be, is a key way of inspiring the engineers of tomorrow.”

Chief Executive of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers

“Our mission is to empower and
inspire teachers and students. ENGINEERING@WORK helps them really explore
this diverse and progressive sector through actual hands-on experiences. At
STEM@WORK we want everyone to have the opportunity to be involved in STEM for
a more sustainable future."

Michelle Grant

Director of STEM@WORK

 “In order to tackle the engineering skills gap we need more graduates and apprentices to enter the profession, and this can only happen if more school-age children – girls as well as boys – are attracted to, and choose to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects. The IET and IMechE is investing considerable resource in EEGS to support vital projects like ENGINEERING@WORK, which highlight the exciting, creative and rewarding world of engineering careers to young people.”
