EEF has responded to the Science and Technology Committee inquiry into closing the STEM skills gap.
The Committee sought evidence on:
- The STEM skills that were needed but were found to be in short supply or missing;
- How this particular skills need has been addressed, including specific details of the measures introduced (eg whether the measures are focused on developing generic skills (such as management), sector-specific skills or raising awareness, how they have been implemented and delivered, and how many people have taken/are currently taking part).
- The cost of the measures and how they have been funded.
- The results of any evaluation of the measures / schemes introduced.
