It is widely accepted that there is a forecast shortage of skilled STEM workers. In addition, women are significantly under-represented in technical and engineering careers, and the gender divide is clearly seen in school subject choices.

In order to inspire more young women to pursue a maritime career, the 1851 Trust are running 10 Maritime Roadshow for Girls aimed at girls in Years 7 & 8 that promote STEM studies and help these girls make informed subject choices ahead of their GCSEs

This event will be hosted at Belfast Port Harbour Office on 21 January.

The 1851 Trust are now accepting school applications for the upcoming 1851 Trust Maritime Roadshow for Girls.

Please contact events@1851trust.org.uk if you would like to bring a group of 11-13 year old female students to any of the roadshow dates, listed here.
