Advance HE's STEM team provides national leadership in developing and disseminating evidence-informed practice in learning and teaching in higher education. 

STEM subjects are recognised as having strategic importance in higher education for the economy and employers. The student learning experience in STEM subjects is vital in ensuring sustained growth in the uptake of these key disciplines. An excellent learning experience ensures that students have developed the right skills at the time of graduation and beyond through continued professional development.

Learning and teaching in cyber security

It is widely recognised by Government, employers and education providers that we need to build a pipeline of cyber talent, both to respond to cyber threats and to grow the UK cyber security sector. Curriculum development is required across degree programmes to help prepare students for entry-level security career opportunities and develop security-aware users.

To address these challenges, the Higher Education Academy (now Advance HE) was been funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), to support the higher education sector in creating and disseminating evidenced-informed practice in this field. Since 2014, 11 higher education providers across the UK have been awarded grant funding to improve cyber security teaching and learning.
