Leading firms are launching a new scheme aimed at encouraging schoolgirls to consider careers in areas such as engineering and technology.

BT, Ericsson, 02 and Vodafone are joining forces to introduce a pilot programme to match school pupils with a business mentor. The companies said they hoped the programme can be rolled out across the UK. Paula Constant, who chairs BT s Women s Network, said: This scheme could make a real difference in encouraging girls to apply for jobs that require science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills.

Research shows that even though girls study the relevant subjects in school, only a minority go on to pursue careers in this area.

This issue needs to be addressed and we re really excited about the role we can play in inspiring and supporting female school leavers who may be considering a career in STEM.
