Vision: Sustaining and developing the talent pool in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (“STEM”) across Thames Valley Berkshire through an agreed delivery plan between skills providers and employers The ‘Gearing Up for STEM Skills Strategy and Action Plan’ is positioned at the heart of government reforms to education and training. The intention is to ensure a clear connection between the core STEM subjects both to the new Industrial Strategy and the productivity agenda. The Thames Valley Berkshire economy is based on strengths in science and technology and the continued resilience of these is central to its international competitiveness. The ambition and proven creativity in our established businesses relies on knowledge rich networks and a deeply informed supply chain. In turn we all rely on a continuous stream of new talent entering our workforces, challenging old ideas and bringing fresh energy and perspective. The Thames Valley is a great place to live and to work; its infrastructure and connections ensure its openness. Its well-educated population offers further potential in building further future competitiveness, and the Plans contained within this document will help ensure this potential has the best chance of being fully realised.
