Essex County Council and STEM
Each month the PROCareer STEM Advisor meets up with the Skills Manager from Essex County Council who is in charge of running their STEM in schools project. We share ideas and pool resources including designing and delivering events. The PROCareer team will, for example, provide Apprentice Ambassadors to support an Essex County Council STEM event. In turn the free activities that we run at PROCAT are advertised in the Events and Project Brochure that is promoted by the county council’s Employment and Skills Board.
When members of the PROCareer team are working in schools we make sure that teachers and students are aware of the full range of STEM related activities that Essex County Council are offering each year. Working in partnership we are able to maximise the impact we have on raising the awareness of young people and their teachers about STEM related careers.
