The Grand Challenges
The Grand Challenges programme aims to help young people develop the skills needed to bridge the gap between learning and career choices.
The Government’s Industrial Strategy sets out four key Grand Challenges for our future:
Working together, Government, businesses, organisations and education can solve these challenges and make a real difference to people’s lives. In partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), we have developed a collection of resources, to improve people’s knowledge of future career opportunities, the types of STEM skills that are needed and how young people can gain those skills.
Inspire young people with the Grand Challenges

Grand Challenge Placements are a unique opportunity to learn what future technologies will offer from the people who are developing them now.
