Course Description

This course is made available through the eLearnAfrica and FutureLearn partnership.

How will you develop your students’ career aspirations?


Enhance your role as a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) subject teacher by linking curriculum learning to careers. Through weekly tasks, you will identify how to adapt your STEM curriculum, engaging your students in careers linked to their classroom learning.


Learn from experienced educators who have adapted their teaching, worked with employers and collaborated with local STEM Ambassadors to create a careers-linked curriculum that both engages and inspires students within the STEM subjects.


This course has been designed for both secondary teachers and further education lecturers, with case studies and specific activities for each sector. This course is for all teachers, to enable you to embed careers learning in your teaching. Careers leads may find this course useful to support school and college strategies.


Our focus is on the UK STEM sector, however, we will be presenting the need for STEM skilled working, reference to the practise of employer volunteers, and approaches equally applicable to other countries.


Certificate cost may vary. You will be redirected to the host page for cost and payment options.
