Darwin comes to Nottingham

by Guest Blogger: Amy Turner 2. November 2009 16:36

Local students films are now ‘up in lights’ on the side of the Royal Centre in Nottingham. Passers by will be able to marvel at the student’s short films on the theme of evolution.  The film projection takes place at dusk and shows a glimpse of four films (images only and no sound) which support Darwin200 and celebrate how Darwin’s ideas on evolution have affected our lives.

Students from St Pauls Catholic School in Leicester, Robert Smyth School in Leicestershire, St Thomas More Catholic School in Buxton, and Queen Eleanor Technology College in Stamford, have all worked with professional filmmakers to communicate the concept of evolution in a creative way.  The films form part of Ignition*’s Sci-Art Fusions project and will be running until February 2010.

Top 10 Employability Skills Guide

by JenniferD 2. November 2009 12:28

 

A new guide has been compiled with contributions from a range of UK-based companies to identify the top 10 employability skills which they look for in potential employees. The guide goes one step further by giving examples of how young people could show evidence of these skills in an interview or application for a job. Examples, many of which are STEM-related, are given of where young people may have developed and demonstrated skills both in and outside lessons. 

Employability Skills can be defined as the transferable skills needed by an individual to make them ‘employable’. Along with good technical understanding and subject knowledge, employers often outline a set of skills that they want from an employee. These skills are what they believe will equip the employee to carry out their role to the best of their ability. 

Employability depends on your knowledge, skills and attitudes, how you use those assets, and how you present them to employers. 

The guide has been compiled by STEMNET and is available to download at http://www.stemnet.org.uk/news/viewitem.cfm?cit_id=382946
