The skills shortage threatens productivity, growth and economic expansion of the Electronics sector in the UK. We welcome your support to help us to drive change.

Involvement in our Programmes

The UKESF provides an ever-growing education programme, inspiring students about Electronics at school and to pursue STEM-focused subjects through to A-level. We also run an expanding Scholarship Scheme for Electronics undergraduates, providing industry placements, developing employability skills and encouraging innovation, in addition to giving financial support.

To find out more about how you can collaborate with the UKESF on new or existing projects, get in touch at [email protected].


As a registered education charity, we are eligible to receive donations. Our work aims to provide practical, direct and engaging support to benefit young people.

Just some of the ways your donation could make a difference include:

  • £1,500 funds a bursary and supports professional development for a female undergraduate studying Electronics at one of our partner universities
  • £1,200 pays for two secondary schools/colleges to receive Electronics Everywhere project kits
  • £250 purchases an Arduino-based ‘starter’ kit with teaching materials for a secondary schools, as part of our Insight into Electronics project.

With your help, we will tackle the skills shortage. To make a donation, please email [email protected].

Charity of the Year and other Workplace Schemes

In the past, a ‘Charity of the Year’ scheme supported us to launch #TurnOnToElectronics, a nationwide, celebrity-endorsed campaign to promote Electronics to young people.
