Overview

It is widely known that Europe needs more young people to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and careers to become part of a much-needed qualified workforce in the upcoming years.

At the same time, a wide range of factors affects students’ interest and pursuit of STEM careers - from the given curriculum to teachers’ knowledge to even participation in professional development activities. Whatever these factors may be, they are usually directly linked to school organisation.

For this reason, it will be of vital importance to build the capacity to empower the most relevant stakeholders in school leadership and school organisation. The Opening Schools to STEM Careers MOOC is meant to train heads of schools and career counsellors to successfully equip schools with tools for introducing and attracting young people to STEM careers.
