STE(A)M IT Deliverable 4.2
The continued substantial shortage of STEM skilled workers may jeopardize the success of the European economy. This affects all industrial sectors and slows down the pace of innovation, which in turn has adverse effects on employment and productivity in the related industries. Consequently, the shortage of STEM professionals at all levels weakens Europe’s ability to compete globally. Additionally, the job market is so complex that even in the case of schools with dedicated staff to explain the different career opportunities, students do not always get the help that they need.
In these Guidelines on how to present STEM jobs in classrooms teachers can find suggestions on how to integrate the topic of STEM careers and jobs in their classes, especially with the use of career sheets, video interviews and podcasts, as well as activities and follow-up suggestions. The aim is to support teachers to integrate career guidance in the teaching. The activities suggested are adaptable in various educational contexts so that teachers can use them within their existing curricula and programmes.
