Morning Mike

I'm reading this as being a bit wider than STEM, but waiting on the HEFCE guidance to be sure.  Mandelson's written statement from Monday morning talks about 

"extra places in courses related to the New Industry, New Jobs agenda such as science, technology, engineering and maths".  I think that "such as" is important and means "not exclusively STEM".  NINJA ( http://www.dius.gov.uk/~/media/publications/N/new_industry_new_jobs ) does talk about civil infrastructure as well as biotech, life sciences, low carbon tech, renewable energy and ICT.  It also talks about creative industries, design and leisure management, along with subjects needed to suppport emerging businesses in all these areas - "financial and professional services" among others.

HEFCE noted on Monday that they'd be releasing guidance when they received some from BIS.  I suppose we'll get the detail then.

Regards

Paul

Hi All
 
Hot issue of the moment ...  does anyone know if there's a documented
source from HEFCE in their Labyrinth of a website, I can lookup of what
constitutes a STEM subject, eg by JACS code? (I actually need it by
Learndirect subject code but that's too complicated to explain here ...
and if I can find it by JACS I can probably track down LD code)
 
In particular I'd like to know where Construction related subjects fit
in - Civil Engineering seems to have been defined in the ELQ SIVS
(Strategically Important & Vulnerable Subjects) list, but what about
other construction subjects/courses in relation to the definition of
STEM?
 
Many thanks
