Challenge

By 2023 our country will require 142,000 STEM professionals to match the growing demand for innovation and a growing/ageing population. However, there is currently a STEM skills shortage in the UK of 69000 professionals. In order to prevent our society from stagnating, we have to increase the number of students that aspire to study STEM at University. A small minority of African and Caribbean students aspire to study STEM, so by targeting this group, we can plug the gap and fill the need.

Solution

Uni Genius will provide work experience, university support, mentoring and academic support that will inspire our students to want to work in STEM and empower them to be able to achieve high grades so that they can be the solution to many of society's problems.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support over 250 less privileged students within the next 5 years to progress in STEM, benefiting their families, local communities and the wider society.

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
