A group of STEM ambassadors visit Bradfield School in Sheffield to share their stories with a group of Year 9 girls.
As a lesson starter the pupils take part in an exercise aimed at combating some of the stereotypical images of STEM related careers. The ambassadors then take questions from the pupils about the sort of careers that are available to pupils who take up STEM subjects.
Meanwhile another group of learners are followed as they take part in a work placement run by the Connaught Partnership. Here the video examines the processes and procedures needed to ensure a successful work placement.
Apprentices at an aerospace manufacturer in Bolton discuss the benefits of experience in the workplace and a learner in Sheffield talks about the value of her work placement at a firm of architects.
