The STEM Online Experience

I am available to participate in one or all of the experience dates below and understand I am expected to attend the full duration of the experience. (Please note the first day of the experience is a school visit. This could be subject to change due to changing circumstances with COVID-19. We will inform you if any changes do need to be made.)

  • Cohort 2: 2 – 9 July 2021
  • Cohort 3: 16 – 23 July 2021
  • Cohort 4: 10 – 17 September 2021

I can confirm that I am currently in my penultimate year of study (of an undergraduate degree or PhD), and that if I am successful in gaining an offer for the Training Programme it will be for 2022 and will be to teach a science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM) subject.

By completing the STEM Online Experience I understand that I can gain an offer for the Training Programme from taking part in a reduced assessment at the end of the STEM Online Experience.

International qualifications and right to work in the UK

If you have international qualifications you can still apply to the STEM Online Experience.

I have qualifications that were obtained outside of the UK.

I have the right to work in the UK for the duration of the two-year Training Programme starting in June 2022.
