The UKESF knows that the skills shortage threatens productivity, growth and economic expansion of the Electronics sector in the UK.
“Moving beyond talk about the skills shortage to take positive action is what the UKESF is all about.”
Stew Edmondson, CEO, UKESF
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.
Here are just some of the ways in which your donation could benefit young people and the Electronics sector:
- £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 and a CPD training session for each teacher
- £450 funds a sixth former to attend a 4-day residential Electronics taster course at one of our partner universities
- £100 purchases an Arduino-based remotely controlled vehicle Electronics kit to enable a schoolchild to complete a more complex Electronics construction and coding project
With your help, we will tackle the skills shortage.
