STEM education holds the key for solving many of our planet’s problems. An early start is helpful for learners, industry and society as a whole. The British Council runs several STEM focused initiatives to promote STEM education and international research and collaboration in the field. English and Digital for Girls' Education (EDGE) programme aims to improve the life prospects of adolescent girls in socio economically marginalised communities by enhancing their English proficiency, digital and 21st century skills, awareness of social issues and improving the leadership skills of a smaller group of peer leaders drawn from the same group.
Through the UK India Education Research Initiative (UKIERI), we have:
- Engaged 300 Schools 4000+ Higher Education Institutes and 200 Vocational/Technical Institutes
- Trained 8,000 school leaders and 400 Tutor Facilitators across 300 schools
Partnering objective: Working with the State and Central agencies in school education systems, this theme aims to build capacity of STEM educators, teachers and leaders, resulting in making the teaching, assessment and learning of STEM more practical and real life focused, in turn driving improved learner outcomes in Government schools across India.
