Stand Agency’s new brief tackles STE(A)M skills crisis

Posted by Katy GarlandTagged , , , ,

Stand Agency has been appointed by the Engineering Development Trust. EDT is a charity that works to enhance experiences for young people within STE(A)M (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) through the Industrial Cadets programme. By working with education, employers and partners, Industrial Cadets creates a talent pipeline and a future skilled workforce, whilst helping young people to develop the skills they need to enter industry with confidence.

Stand will help to promote and support opportunities for young people, as well as work to position EDT as the charity that helps prepare the next generation with the necessary skills for the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Laura Oliphant, Managing Director of Stand Agency said:

“We’re delighted to be appointed by EDT. With the UK currently experiencing a STE(A)M skills crisis, our campaign will address this, as well as the lack of diversity in the STE(A)M workforce. We want young people to see there are alternative routes of education available to them, and that jobs in these industries aren’t just for a privileged few.”

Penny Tysoe, Projects Director at EDT said:

“After an impressive pitch, we are delighted to be working with Stand Agency. Their support will help us to open young people’s eyes to the exciting potential of a career in STE(A)M and help create access to STE(A)M without barriers. They showed a real understanding of our aims and charitable mission, immediately connected with what we are trying to achieve and we’re looking forward to a really great campaign.”
