Vision for science and mathematics education

Our Vision for science and mathematics education

Join us to discuss our Vision for science and mathematics education and explore how we can make it a reality.

Science and maths are at the heart of modern life, whatever your day job.

One million new science, engineering and technology professionals will be required in the UK by 2020. Yet too many young people are not given the right opportunities to learn these skills.

Our vision is for an education system which ensures everyone can study science and maths in a form that is right for them. Our ambition is for every young person leaving education at 18 to have an understanding of science and maths that will be with them for life and for more young people to be inspired to go on to further study of science, engineering, technology and maths.

Join us

We are holding events around the UK to coincide with the party conferences. Join us and a panel including teachers, employers and policymakers to discuss our vision and explore how our education systems could better inspire young people and give them the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.
