If you’re a teacher you can get behind our scheme, inspire students to consider higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and develop contacts with working scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians in industry and research institutions.
Students benefit from working in industry and research institutions, gain an insight into current research and development, and get first-hand experience of STEM in a working environment.
How to find out more about the scheme
You should contact your local Nuffield Coordinator who will provide you with more information about how your students can get involved.
What are the projects like?
We have made a short film about several different Nuffield placements that took place in 2011. These give an idea of the depth and complexity of the projects that students work on. You may find it helpful to show these clips to students who might be interested in doing a project, so that they have an idea of the form their project might take. Click here to see the films.
By encouraging your students to take part in the scheme you can:
- Develop contacts with working scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians in industry and research institutions
- Improve links with Higher Education in your area
- Raise the profile of your School/College within the local community
- Inspire students to consider higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.
