In this webinar, STEM Learning colleagues Sharmila Metcalf and Megan Lawrence talk us through what these placements offer students, teachers and placement hosts, the eligibility criteria, the application process, the logistics of the placements and what will happen if in-person placements cannot take place next year.
If you are a Parent or carer of a student who might be interested in these placements or STEM professional who are interested in having your organisation host a placement, come along to find out more about the NRP programme and have your questions answered.
