Understanding skills requirements and connecting the right training is key to developing a skilled STEM workforce
The technical landscape is always changing - employers need skilled workers and workers need training. nexaSTEM aims to bring together people with training and education expertise who can deliver solutions that fill critical areas of STEM skills need – with a particular focus on the life sciences sector.
This sector is experiencing rapid growth, driven by many new and innovative technologies appearing at pace. This requires continual adaptation of educational curricula and training offerings to keep up, and poses significant challenges to continually up-skill the existing workforce.
nexaSTEM is working with partners to develop skills strategy and deliver solutions to skills gaps through educational offerings, short course training and the development of apprenticeships.
