Measuring the impact of your careers activities
Student Survey: Linking STEM Curriculum Learning to Careers
This student survey can be used to gain an understanding of your students perceptions of STEM careers and their aspirations for STEM further study. It is part of the STEM Learning online course, Linking STEM Curriculum Learning to Careers.
Skills builder toolkit
The Skills Builder Toolkit draws together the best thinking and experience around building essential skills from educators, employers and other skills-building organisations. It turns skills that can often seem hazy into a consistent set of eight transferable skills. Each skill is broken down into teachable, learnable and assessable chunks, putting them into an effective order to support progression throughout primary, secondary and post-16.
STEM careers toolkit: secondary school student survey
This student survey can be used to measure student attitudes towards the STEM subjects and their interest in careers in the STEM sector.
It is also a useful 'before and after' tool for measuring the impact of activities such as off-timetable days or STEM clubs.
