What does the drop in girls taking STEM mean for the next generation of women?

A new centre to protect the UK against cyber-attacks is to be officially opened by the Queen today. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in London is designed to improve Britain’s resilience to attacks and act as an operational nerve centre. 

This closely follows a story earlier this week on the UK government being set to provide cyber security training to teenagers in schools as part of its plans to address the cyber security skills shortage. The new Cyber Schools Programme aims to teach and encourage school children aged between 14 and 18 to develop key skills needed to work in the growing cyber security sector.

As the technological revolution sets in, I share with BCB Radio’s DRIVE what the drop rate in STEM subjects for girls at A level means for the next generation of women entering higher paid jobs in the workplace.
