The Smallpeice Trust keen to attract more girls to their STEM full board residential courses

Published 4th March 2020

The Design and Technology Association has a long standing relationship with The Smallpeice Trust. As an organisation, The Smallpeice Trust are really keen to attract more females to their STEM full board residential courses.  Whilst some of their Easter courses are now full for male places, they still have female places available on the following courses that will no doubt appeal to interested female students in Years  8, 9 and 10.  In addition to learning about these subjects, the courses also provide students with an opportunity to see what student life on campus is like, to take part in planned and supervised evening social activities and to help make future UCAS applications stand out.

Attached are interactive pdf flyers relating to the courses and there is a link direct within the flyers to the course information on The Smallpeice Trust’s website.  In addition, for your convenience, please find below some brief information about the courses with direct links to the website and how to book :-
