Main aims of the project

Camden’s STEAM programme aims to reach every young person in Camden school, from Early Years to Year 13, with high-quality employer experiences in the curriculum. We encourage every Camden primary and secondary school to join the STEAM Hub, whether an experienced member or brand new to the Hub. The STEAM Hub is fully funded for schools and has received excellent feedback from the 30 primary and secondary schools involved to date. We invite one or two teachers per school to join the Hub as a STEAM Leader. STEAM Leaders need to be interested and excited by STEAM and in a position to influence change at a whole-school strategic level. The STEAM Hub is fully funded for Camden primary and secondary schools, all are encouraged to join.

The STEAM Hub programme includes:

  • Six modules at inspiring STEAM venues 4-6pm
  • Teachers will learn the principles of high-quality employer partnerships
  • Teachers will learn about key growth sectors such as science and technology, digital and creative, and the built environment/engineering/sustainability from key employer partners
  • Teachers will build strong networks and have access to exciting and innovative opportunities for their students – these range from in class workshops to experiential visits.
  • Experienced STEAM Leaders will build upon prior STEAM employer partnerships to further enhance STEAM opportunities in the curriculum; and shape STEAM curriculum development in Camden.
  • New STEAM Hub members will learn about different STEAM industries and roles and apply an employer partnership(s) to the curriculum. They will develop a strategy to integrate STEAM opportunities across the whole school curriculum.

Which staff would benefit from joining any why?

The STEAM Hub will continue with its existing membership, but will have a wider offer open to all Camden schools – details to be shared in the Autumn Term.

What does the Hub plan to achieve and what resources will be created?

We have an ambition that every young person in Camden has a rich and compelling employer experience through the core curriculum. STEAM Leaders will work collaboratively to develop examples of STEAM curriculum with associated employer partnerships. These will be disseminated to all Camden schools as models of STEAM Curriculum design. The now familiar landscape of digital media will allow employer partnerships to be scaled. For example, having live or asynchronous input from employers into the classroom through various video calling technologies.
