The Scottish Education Awards celebrate the hard work and success which takes place in Scottish education. They recognise the achievements of people who dedicate their lives to children and young people and showcase the valuable work and innovation in Scottish classrooms
This year a new award category for STEM, Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, has been introduced.
This category recognises establishments who are helping children and young people develop STEM skills and apply these across the four contexts for learning – curriculum, inter-disciplinary learning, ethos and life of the school and opportunities for personal achievement.
Nominations should be able to evidence the following questions and describe the impact on learners, the school and wider community:
- In what ways do learners in your establishment demonstrate successful application of STEM skills?
- In what ways are learners using STEM to develop skills for learning, life and work?
- In what ways do you work with partners/parents/wider community to support STEM?
Nominations close 12pm on Monday 16 February 2015.
