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 STEM subjects, the 1851 Trust are running 10 Maritime Roadshow for Girls aimed at girls in Years 7 & 8 to help them make informed subject choices ahead of their GCSEs.

This event will be hosted at Fleetwood Nautical Campus on 18 November.

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.
