Impact on Regional Skills and the Regional Economy
STEM in the curriculum – trend analysis
The local economy relies on a workforce with high level skills and skills in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
The chart above shows the percentage of qualifications completed by A level learners that were in STEM related subjects. This shows an increase of 3% compared to the previous year.
There continues to be a very strong focus on STEM provision across Dudley College of Technology including Dudley Sixth. We are committed to finding more opportunities for A-level learners to continue to higher education locally so that their skills might benefit the regional economy and the opening of the Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology has provided further progression pathways into higher apprenticeships and employment. The development of the Health Innovation Centre will continue to expand the opportunities for learners in the region.
