About this work
This review specifically addressed the question: 'What factors influence the STEM subject choices of young people (aged 14-19) in education in the UK?' The Trust commissioned the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre) to undertake a systematic review to examine why young people make the subject choices they do. The STEM subjects are science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
