All 18 secondary schools in South Tyneside will have the chance to increase and expand their current science, technology, engineering and maths provision. The programme in South Tyneside will focus on the primary to secondary school transition, with specialist training provided to enhance the skills and experience of teachers. The funding will also be used to enhance careers services for school leavers.
