Building on the revolutionary approach of the original People Like Me resource, People Like Me: Pathways to Apprenticeships is an outreach resource aimed at helping girls and young women aged 14-19 see that they can be happy and successful on STEM apprenticeships.
When it comes to encouraging women into science, technology and engineering, we just haven’t got the messaging right. Most girls decide that jobs and careers in science are “not for people like me”.
This programme has gone from strength to strength, with the activity being repeated in 2010, 2011 and 2012. This report is based on feedback gained from individuals who have participated in the RAF WISE-Experience over a 3 year period with a response rate of over 72% and provides robust evidence of the participants' views.
This is a summary of key points from a research review commissioned by Women into Science & Engineering (WISE), to inform the future strategy of our campaign. The research review was written as an internal report, but we have published key findings and recommendations as a useful tool for the many other organisations working to attract more women and girls to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects as a route to a wide range of exciting and rewarding careers.
Apprentices: Recruiting and retaining female and black, Asian and minority ethnic apprentices in science, engineering and technology'.
This good practice guide is aimed at all organisations involved in the attraction, recruitment and retention of apprentices in the science, engineering, technology and the built environment sectors.
This guide is for all types of STEM organisations and sets out the reasons why organisations are increasingly interested in promoting and proactively managing diversity. It outlines the opportunities and challenges diversity presents, and suggests effective ways to develop strategies to make change happen. It draws upon extensive research and best practice to help your organisation progress on its diversity journey, whatever stage it is at.
This guide, developed for The Big Bang Fair by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), in association with WISE, focuses on how to engage with girls visiting the Fair. It looks at ways of ensuring young people get the most from their visit and helps ensure their enthusiasm lasts beyond the great day out we know they’ll have, and influences the choices they make in the future.
