Updated Friday 4th March 2016

Get a preview of our new course, Returning to STEM, and sign up to be notified when it launches.

Returning to STEM is a new free OpenLearn course. Below, watch an introductory video featuring Dr Sue Black:

If you have studied or worked in either science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) and you are looking to return to work in one of these sectors, then this course offers a supportive environment to help you realise your ambitions.

Through a series of web-based activities, you will analyse your previous experiences and skills, identify new employment opportunities and develop a realistic and powerful action plan to enable you to find a job that will fulfil your aspirations and suit your lifestyle. As well as developing your skills and confidence, the course includes the chance to learn from role models and mentors from SET industries who will provide up to date information about trends and opportunities in each sector.

Although this is not compulsory, the course would be most useful for those who already have a background in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics subject – either through previous work experience in one of these sectors or having studied at higher education level.
