STEAM Leadership Programme at Camden Council

Camden is a unique borough where science, technology and creativity meet, with world-leading organisations on our doorstep. The Camden STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Commission was set up to consider how young people in our borough can truly benefit from these opportunities. The Camden STEAM programme offers a variety of initiatives, such as a school/employer brokerage programme which links schools to trained STEAM Ambassadors from a wide range of employers; a girls mentoring programme with Facebook; a computer science programme for schools with Google; and summer Camden Challenges for young people at employers such as Ted Baker, Argent, Conran Design Group and Heatherwick Studios. In response to the pandemic, we developed a Virtual Work Experience programme for 200 students at Camden secondary schools, working closely with leading employers (Google, Francis Crick Institute, Central Saint Martin’s, Skanska, CSJV, Springer Nature, HS2, Camden Council and Regent’s Place) to develop high-quality placements, with excellent feedback from young people and schools.

The STEAM Hub is at the core of Camden’s STEAM programme. It is an intensive leadership programme for two middle leaders from each participating school, which focuses on:

  • High-quality STEAM curriculum design
  • Embedding STEAM beyond the curriculum (e.g. careers education, employer engagement, enrichment, and extra-curricular provision)
  • Leading whole-school, long-term change
