  • All young people to be made aware of the fulfilling and attractive careers open to them through the continued study of science and maths All young people are well prepared to develop the necessary skills and qualities needed to make informed choices about the qualifications they will require for further study and careers in STEM
  • Led by Science Council including support from ASE, Royal Soc of Chemistry and IoP
  • The DCSF’s Science and Maths campaign aims to encourage more teenagers to take science and mathematics subjects at A level. It works by challenging young people’s perceptions of these subjects and demonstrating to them the huge range of aspirational and rewarding jobs available via science and maths on the campaign website: www.scienceandmaths.net The campaign also speaks to parents to encourage them to support their children in considering science and maths, post 16. Teachers and careers professionals will also be targeted through a science and maths careers awareness project, including the development of new resources to help them in advising students as they choose their post 16 options. The campaign is complemented by the Science Council’s www.futuremorph.org website, which provides a range of new STEM careers content including videos, interactive elements and quizzes to engage young people further and provide advice and resources for parents and teachers.
