From Monday 8th April to Friday 3rd May 2013 the Careers Advisory Service is holding an online forum on careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) for OU students wanting to plan their next steps. The forum will be moderated by a careers adviser and also supported by a number of ambassadors from STEMNET (the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Network) who work in and volunteer to promote STEM careers and advise students about the opportunities available.
We hope as many of you as possible will take advantage of this forum to post your questions, browse responses given to others’ questions or use the forum to network and share your experiences with other students. The forum will be live for 4 weeks then read only for 12 months.
For a schedule of future forums or to access past careers forums still available in read-only format, please visit the Forums page of this website.
As well as our own vacancy database, the OU Careers Advisory Service is now able to offer students access to the Graduate Opportunities system.
This system displays current vacancies across all sectors, and is particularly useful for vacancies in difficult employment areas, and with companies that don’t traditionally target the OU. It is a ‘no frills’ database, and simply lists opportunities.
Regular updates mean that there are literally dozens of new opportunities added every day, so it is worthwhile visiting the site regularly.
You can access the database via our Online Vacancy Service page (you will need your OU Computer Username and password to access this page)

Teach First still has limited vacancies for their unique two-year Leadership Development Programme starting this June.
There is a persistent shortage of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) teachers in England and Wales. This is where you come in…
Apply to their Leadership Development Programme and they will develop you to become an outstanding teacher in a school in a low-income community. You’ll work towards a professional teaching qualification whilst receiving a salary and getting real responsiblity in the classroom from day one.
You’ll be supported along the way with professional leadership development, coaching and opportunities to network with supporters from all industry sectors.
Teach First have already made several offers to Open University graduates this year, and are looking for more inspirational candidates to take up the challenge.
How much you achieve in life should not be determined by how much your parents earn. Yet in the UK, it usually is. Teach First believe in the power of education to change this; they are an education charity working with others to give every child the right to a decent education. They train people with leadership potential to be inspirational teachers in schools in low-income communities across the country. These leaders go on to work in different sectors of society towards a future where no child’s education success is limited by their socio-economic background.
