STEM skills enable innovation and drive economic growth, thereby unlocking the jobs of the future, with 65% of Australia’s fastest growing jobs require science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills. Career opportunities in STEM are vast, varied and exciting, with employers increasingly looking for workers who are able to use and create technologies in Western Australia.
On June 5 2020, the WA Government have launched 'Take 2 STEM'. A state-wide digital-first campaign targets students, parents and educators, which aims to increase awareness about the importance of STEM skills for future jobs, and increase the number of Western Australians taking up STEM subjects, courses and careers.
STEM skills can empower all Western Australians to take part in a technological future, regardless of gender, race or postcode.
