Gatsby Network Development Project

GTA England is delighted to announce that we have been successful in securing funding from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, an organisation who like GTA England, are committed to supporting the STEM agenda and increasing the number of skilled engineering technicians within the UK. The Foundation’s Trustees have agreed to fund a GTA England network development project, aimed at delivering the following outcomes:

  • An increase of 400 new employers actively engaged with GTAs by January 2016
  • An increase of 400 new Apprentice starts in STEM related subjects within member GTAs by January 2016
  • To have established GTA STEM provision in any identified geographic areas in England where such provision is not currently available by January 2016
  • To have increased GTA England membership by a minimum of 5 new members by September 2015

The project will last 18 months, and the first phase of this exciting project will be to conduct a robust baseline exercise to establish current GTA coverage by region and sector, and to establish baseline data regarding current levels of employer engagement and STEM apprentice starts. This phase must be completed within 3 months of the project start date. GTA England are in the process of engaging support to deliver the project, and members will be sent further details of the project in the next couple of weeks.
