With many students across the province receiving their A level results, Mr Ken Webb, Principal of South Eastern Regional College, is strongly encouraging students to consider enrolling onto a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math’s) course at their local College.

He said: “With STEM subjects a key driver of economic growth and prosperity, I am encouraging students to explore the many possibilities that their local Further Education College can offer and how exciting and rewarding a STEM career can be.

“With men outnumbering women by three to one in STEM careers I am urging parents and careers advisors to promote and enrol their children in subjects that focus on academic excellence.

“I want women to aim higher and students to make brave decisions by undertaking programmes that will contribute to the country’s development to accelerate growth.”
