Of the 10,000 academies in England, 8,500 are part of multi-academy trusts (MATs).

Computers play an intrinsic role in all our lives; they’re necessary for almost all types of work, we use them during our downtime, and their role in our lives is only getting bigger. We use apps to organise our lives, to do our jobs, for reference, communication, and entertainment. In fact, it is hard to remember how society functioned before the computer revolution.
It's no secret that girls are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Although progress has been made throughout the years, in part due to the support of incredible teachers, there is still room for improvement. According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), women make up only 35% of STEM students in higher education globally. Since interest in STEM often starts in primary school, it's incredibly important to provide support for these women early on in life and instil them with the courage to pursue STEM fields. Teachers can no doubt support this work. Here are five ways teachers can help encourage girls to become inspiring women in STEM.
