Supporting STEM Clubs

As the West of England STEM Club Champions we are driving the growth and development of STEM Clubs across our region by delivering a programme of support for KS3-5 teachers involved with extra-curricular STEM clubs.

Our aim is for all secondary schools and FE colleges to establish, sustain and grow their own STEM clubs. To help achieve this, we are delivering a structured programme of CPD and networking for club leaders, STEM Ambassadors and others who can help school-based STEM clubs to thrive.

Resources for STEM Clubs

STEM Learning have developed a range of materials specifically designed to support STEM club leaders and STEM Ambassadors in delivering exciting and inspiring STEM clubs activities.

STEM Clubs CPD modules

We are delivering a range of CPD modules at our Exploring STEM CLubs events across the West of England.

This CPD is designed to help teachers and other school staff set up and run successful STEM clubs.

We are also opening up these sessions to STEM Ambassadors with an interest in STEM clubs in schools, to develop a network of STEM club supporters in the region.

Designed for new club leaders, its purpose is to generate confidence in new and potential club leaders and guide them through setting up a club and the first 18 months.
