STEAM industries are key to inspiring roles of the future and in partnership with Your Future Your Ambition are helping to set the digital stage
Leading STEAM organisations such as VISA, P&G, Adobe, GSK, Royal Navy and more join forces with Your Future Your Ambition (YFYA) to make STEAM careers more visible and accessible to students from ages 7 to 23+. YFYA will host its 9th annual event virtually on the 12th November and is free to attend for students and schools.
The gap in STEAM talent in the UK is not reducing at the rate of pace required to significantly meet the skills requirements of an increasingly global and tech driven jobs market. Since its first event in 2012, YFYA has created a link between leading STEAM organisations, educational establishments and young people providing access to industry professionals and role models, to showcase the plethora of opportunities that arise from STEAM career paths. These organisations realise that embracing diversity and making STEAM careers more accessible and inclusive is key to creating a sustainable workforce of the future and bridging the STEAM skills gap. This requires engaging the younger generation from early years upwards to university or other vocational paths through events like YFYA which encourage aspiration and diversity in STEAM based career paths.
