Janey Irving, who is Education Officer for STEM across the Northern Alliance as part of Education Scotland’s Northern Team highly recommends this excellent programme. She said: “These sessions offer young people some really good insights into careers that don’t usually get much of a spotlight. They can be viewed in real time during class or study time, or are available later on YouTube – which is really handy if you’d like to weave a session into learning at a different point in the calendar or timetable.
“I can’t stress enough how useful these sessions are, particularly with the current restrictions in place, to share with young people some real-world insight into a range of careers in STEM.”
