The National HE STEM programme is dedicated to developing a closer relationship between schools,
colleges, higher education (HE) institutions and industry.

After all, in today’s competitive workplace, it’s more important than ever that graduates have the skills to succeed in industry. Unfortunately, all too often, undergraduate learners are ll-equipped to make this transition smoothly and effectively.

This is an issue that was highlighted in the Lambert Review, which exposed the difficult interface between academia and industry. It’s particularly relevant to Yorkshire & Humberside (Y&H) where only six per cent of employers have
any contact with higher education.

Succeeding in Tomorrow’s Engineering World of Work is an HE STEM strand focused on creating a pipeline for students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines to progress successfully into the world of work. By enhancing the curriculum to include transferable skills, Succeeding in Tomorrow’s Engineering
World of Work is improving graduates’ professional readiness. It’s adding to the knowledge they require to play an active and valuable role in the workplace.

Involving collaborative partnership working, the Project has analysed, designed and evaluated a STEM-specific approach to learner/employer engagement. This has resulted in a robust, impact evaluation model from which other HE institutions can benefit.

This brochure outlines the general approach to this ambitious project and celebrates the successful outcomes for the students, graduates and employers involved.
