MacRoberts LLP sponsors Forth Valley College’s career conference for young people
MacRoberts were delighted to help Forth Valley College showcase the wide range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) careers available to young people across Forth Valley this week with their first ever ‘Making STEM Work’ Conference.
Delegates attended a range of exciting workshops delivered by the College’s own teaching departments, Dogfi.sh Mobile, Diageo, Charles River, Historic Environment Scotland, Scottish Power Energy Networks, Equate Scotland, and Skills Development Scotland.
The event also featured an exhibition with 14 organisations taking part to raise awareness of STEM related careers and initiatives.
Following the conference, a celebration event was also held in the evening at the College’s Stirling Campus. This marked the College’s reaccreditation of STEM Assured Status – an industry led quality mark awarded by the STEM Foundation – and also offered an opportunity to explore new partnership initiatives related to STEM.
Valerie Surgenor, Partner at MacRoberts said “MacRoberts was delighted to support Forth Valley College in this unique and inspiring event. STEM provides an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to learning, which is world leading. As a Scottish based law firm, we have long established links with the further education sector and we will continue to work with organisations to deliver and enhance the opportunities for young people in Scotland.”
