Maritime Roadshow for Girls
Welcome to the 1851 Trust Maritime Roadshow for Girls
Part of the Maritime Careers Series of events www.maritimeuk.org/careers
It is widely accepted that there is a forecast shortage of skilled STEM workers. In addition, women are significantly under-represented in technical and engineering careers such as those in the Maritime sector, and the gender divide is clearly seen in school subject choices.
The maritime sector is vast in the careers it offers, the skills it needs and it is on the cusp of change with technological advancements and greater automation. The importance of STEM subjects will increase as jobs become more skilled and data driven in response to new technology.
Aims of the day:
*To raise awareness of maritime careers in schools.
*To increase participation, contribution and confidence of girls in STEM subjects at school.
* To introduce girls to positive and inspiring female maritime role models.
* To empower girls to make informed choices about potential further education and career paths.
*To inspire girls to continue studying STEM subjects beyond Key Stage 3.
