The Strategy is primarily intended to benefit children, young people and their families, adult learners as well as employers through:

  • Nursery assistants, teachers and managers,
  • Teachers, teaching support staff including technicians and School Leaders,
  • Parent Councils and Parent Teacher Associations,
  • Educators working in community settings,
  • Careers Advisers,
  • Colleges staff and leaders,
  • University staff and leadership,
  • Scotland's Science Centres and Festivals,
  • Unions,
  • Professional bodies,
  • Learned Societies,
  • Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, and
  • Other organisations and third sector organisations who promote STEM or work to improve STEM and gender balance in STEM.

In the delivery of this Strategy, it is intended that the following bodies will drive action forward at national level:

  • Scottish Government
  • Education Scotland
  • Scottish Qualifications Authority
  • Scottish Funding Council
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Enterprise Agencies
  • Education Authorities

We are keen, however, to ensure that we maximise existing and identify new partnerships, in particular with employers, to support and implement this work.
