According to the Australian Education Council’s National STEM School Education Strategy (Dec 2015), employment is predicted to increase in professional, scientific and technical services by 14 per cent and in health care by almost 20 per cent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has estimated that some STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) jobs, such as ICT professionals and engineers, have grown at about 1.5 times the rate of other jobs in recent years. International research shows that building STEM capacity across the population is critical in helping to support innovation and productivity regardless of occupation or industry. Consistent with this research, industry surveys show that STEM literacy is increasingly becoming part of the core capabilities that Australian employers need.
