Fewer students are studying maths and science at borough schools than across London.
Haringey Council have launched a commission that will aim to get GCSE students involved in science, after figures revealed a below average take up of the subjects.
A commission..?! For this?
Good lord! Those savage Tory cuts are clearly beginning to bite…
Cllr Claire Kober, Leader of Haringey Council, said: “There are currently close to 3 million jobs in the UK that require STEM skills, with the vast majority of these in industries that are expected to grow in the coming years.
“That’s why the Haringey STEM Commission has been tasked with ensuring that Haringey is best placed to take advantage of the opportunities this presents.
“We want to make sure that our young people are receiving the education and training they need to work in these exciting careers, and that Haringey is a borough where STEM industries can thrive.
“To do this we’re seeking the views, opinions and ideas of all Haringey residents as well as a wide-range of experts.”
I bet every meeting has lots of tea, coffee, biscuits, etc.
