Go4SET links teams of six Year 8/9 (England) and S2 (Scotland) pupils with companies and universities to offer a 10 week science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) experience. This project aims to prove to students that the science of engineering and technology can be interesting. There are a lot of discoveries and innovations in this area.

By providing a real and live SET project, Go4SET will raise the pupils’ awareness and highlight the exciting future career opportunities in SET.
Work related learning within an industrial enterprise context is at the core of the Go4SET experience. Pupils will benefit from personal development education enhancing their powers of creativity and innovation.
The UK needs to increase the number of pupils pursuing careers in Science, Engineering and Technology. Support from Industry and business is sought for this initiative and can help to make an important contribution to the future of Science, Engineering and Technology through inspiring the pupils to become involved at this key stage in their education.
Research has shown that the exposure of younger age groups to businesses based on Science, Engineering and Technology encourages more students to choose post-16 courses in these subject areas, eventually leading to the study of SET degrees at university.
Go4SET will empower young people to make informed decisions about their Key Stage 4/Standard Grade options particularly with regard to SET subjects and courses and stimulate their interest in these subjects.
