This site is a resource to provide a single starting point for those wishing to know where studying mathematics can lead. The website has a particular focus on young people between the age of 11 and 19.
This section of the site provides a range of resources, information and signposting to help those working in careers to provide comprehensive and up to date information, advice and guidance on the wide range of careers where mathematics plays a significant role.
Careers and real life contexts that draw on maths are not always visible in the school curriculum, but resources that set maths in context are growing. The STEM Subject Choice and Careers project (funded by DCSF) aims to support careers professionals and teachers with relevant, up to date information, resources and professional development to enthuse and inform pupils.
The site has different key messages to meet the wide range of target groups aimed at. Click here to find out the key messages.
