Your Life is a three-year STEM campaign to ensure the UK has the Maths and Physics skills it needs to succeed in today’s competitive global economy. The Your Life campaign prioritises offering experiences and information to enable young people to make informed subject choices post-16, inspiring them to study Maths and Physics as a gateway to wide-ranging careers whilst also triggering employers to recruit and retain that talent. Your Life operates a year-round campaign of activity engaging pupils and schools with STEM employers and careers. Your Life engages with young people, teachers, parents, business and government with an ultimate goal of increasing the numbers of young people studying Maths and Physics post-16 by 50% by the end of 2017.
Your Life is sponsored by industry, supported by the Government and led by a board of directors chaired by Edwina Dunn, co-founder of dunnhumby and CEO of Starcount and including Martin McCourt, former CEO of Dyson and Ros Rivaz, former CTO of Smith & Nephew. Your Life is guided and sponsored by a group of leading companies and major UK employers: BAE Systems, Carillion, Johnson & Johnson, AT Kearney, Nestle, Shell and Rio Tinto.
The campaign is supported by some of the biggest and best businesses in the world who are truly visionary in leading the way through highlighting the amazing opportunities their industry sectors can offer.
