Step into STEM
Step into STEM is a 7 month mentoring and work experience programme funded by BT, O2, Vodafone and Ericsson which gives 20 female students in London each a mentor from one of the four businesses. Students receive dedicated 1-2-1 time with their mentor who will help them gain employability skills and support with their academic studies. All students take part in a work experience week in the summer in all 4 businesses to gain a better understanding of the various opportunities available to them in the STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) sector. The aim of the programme is to encourage young girls to pursue a career in the STEM sector as currently women only make up 14% of all jobs.
