According to research published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (https://www.ifs.org.uk/publications/13277), many girls start to lose interest in STEM subjects at A-levels. This is in part because of low confidence in their abilities and a concern about being in the minority of a male-dominated area.
We hope by sharing our successful workshop content, we will be able to inspire more girls to choose STEM subjects for A-levels. Students can watch video stories told by relatable female role models, view materials on how to build confidence, and learn tips on key communication skills. Although the Teacher Toolkit lesson plans are designed especially for female GCSE-aged students, the resources are available to all learners, completely free of charge.
