Diversifying STEM Curriculum (STEM Canvas)

STEM Canvas: Diversify your STEM Offer

The STEM Canvas® provides the basis for diversifying STEM provision in an educational provider (e.g. school, college, higher education). It builds upon the institution’s strengths and identifies opportunities for future development. STEM Canvas is a structured programme that actively enhances existing STEM provision, exploring areas for cross-curricula working, as well as helping to create routes to develop new resources, partnerships and provision. This programme provides a way to extend your non-academic portfolio (workplace, vocational and professional development), whilst at the same time boosting your academic offer.


Educational providers (schools, colleges,higher education institutions) that wish to refresh, diversify, extend and reposition their STEM offer.


  • Differentiates STEM and enhances institution’s reputation
  • Strengthens the opportunity to develop new partnerships with business, industry and the community
  • Provides diversification into vocational, work-based learning and professional education
  • Enhances existing STEM provision
  • Enables collaborative thinking and cross-curricular co-creation
  • Identifies areas for staff development to build STEM capability


This programme is a workshop-based intervention that uses our tried and tested STEM Canvas®.

The on-site workshop is highly interactive, structured and outcomes-based. Our experts will guide your strategic direction of travel for STEM, reflecting market and technology trajectories. Following the workshop, a recommendations report will be provided to inform and shape the development of new STEM programmes.

"To maximise the effectiveness of the STEM Assured process, I would urge all schools and colleges to experience the STEM Canvas workshop.  It was abundantly apparent that Professor Medhat, ably assisted by an experienced team around him, had put an enormous amount of preparation into helping us develop a clear vision for our future.
Crucially, not only was clarity provided for our future; a detailed plan of how to achieve this was also established.
Quite simply put, the STEM Canvas workshop is worth every penny and should be experienced by as many educational professionals as possible."
