Women with Stem skills 'lost to the economy'

The National Audit Office (NAO) has identified that:
  • Females made up only 42 per cent of all Stem A-level entries in 2017, and
  • Females regularly outperform their male peers in many Stem subjects.
This participation gap shows that young women represent a pool of potential Stem-skilled people that is currently being lost to the economy.
