STEM Pathfinder Programme
The STEM Pathfinder programme, funded by the former Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and managed by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT), aimed to enable and support networks of specialist schools to design, deliver and integrate STEM activities across their school.
These aims were supported through a programme of continuing professional development, and provision of resources, consultancy and advice to schools. The driver for the Pathfinder was DCSF’s interest in whether a STEM specialism could be manageable and advantageous for schools. As a result the types of activities that schools carried out were those that could potentially form part of a STEM specialism.
This collection comprises:
• Evaluation report of the STEM Pathfinder Programme and its executive summary.
• A publication with practical advice for schools and colleges interested in developing their own practice.
• Four supporting videos and nine case studies exemplifying leading practice in action.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
