Review quote

"Our world of work is changing and this book enables students to see the full range of exciting careers related to STEM subjects that are evolving. There are more opportunities available to enter STEM careers via Apprenticeships but this information can be confusing for students. This book clearly helps students see the value of studying STEM subjects and importantly how to use their subject interest to enter careers." * Jo Bishop, Head of Careers, City and Islington Sixth Form College *
