Course summary

This degree will provide innovative and high-quality training and education designed to ignite and develop the knowledge, skills and attributes across the STEM spectrum. Through the creative application of knowledge, you will develop the skills and attributes to be:• Enquirers• Thinkers• Problem Solvers• Communicators of STEMYou will study the science, mathematics and technology that relates to the world you live and work in. You will learn how to take a complex subject and be able to assimilate and transfer this knowledge so that it can be communicated to a wide range of audiences. For example, ‘genetics’ so that it can be understood, accessed and related to by a 4-year-old, a 14-year old and a 40- year old. By making STEM relevant and give it context, this will generate interest and a desire to learn more and to passion this knowledge to others. Across the course, you will explore STEM themes to interconnect the separate elements so that they have relevance and meaning, all underpinned with learning theory and strategies to educate others. The course has a placement opportunity in each of the three years of study so that you can relate what you have been taught to a real-world situation. The placements will be undertaken in a number of different environments including the community, school, industry and an international placement in the final year of the course.The overall aim of the course is to prepare students to become competent, thoughtful, reflective and innovative practitioners who are committed to providing high-quality teaching, learning and application across the STEM sector.The aim of the course is to develop graduates who will be able to educate others about STEM. Each strand of STEM is not explored in isolation but instead uses themes to demonstrate how they interact and interconnect with each other in the real world.For example, if one of the graduates decided to pursue a career in teaching, they will be able to use creativity and innovation to demonstrate the crucial role that STM plays in the lives of these pupils. This will inspire them to take STEM subjects at GCSE and A level and this cyclical effect will mean that more students will be able to follow STM related degrees and address the skills shortage in the country and beyond.The course will provide the subject specific content to allow progression to PGCE routes of study for those wishing to train to be a teacher.
