Redcar & Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency (RCVDA)

This is a key role for Redcar and Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency (RCVDA) that is being funded by the Dogger Bank Wind Farm and will build on a successful primary science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) careers pilot, supporting its expansion to all Redcar and Cleveland Primary Schools.  


The STEM Building Our Future (Pilot) Programme has been delivered in Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council since March 2021. 


The aim of the programme is to broaden the careers awareness of primary school children and help them to understand the world of work by introducing them to a wide range of exciting local occupations on their doorstep; highlighting what they could become in the future, while challenging stereotypes. 


The Programme focusses on career-related learning associated with Redcar and Cleveland’s future labour market requirements and growth sectors and supports the development of children’s communication, empathy, teamwork, self-awareness, confidence, self-belief, leadership, collaboration, and resilience.
