Our UK education programme was founded in 1968 with a clear aim: to inspire young people. This founding principle continues to encourage and energise every generation; helping them gain a better understanding of how important the STEM subjects are for our industry and for their futures
Science capital and the STEM skills gap
Why is there a STEM skills gap in the UK and what needs to be done to close it?
BP’s commitment to STEM education
Meeting the world’s energy demand is increasingly challenging; the industry needs bright people with a strong foundation in STEM subjects to be the geologists, drilling engineers, chemists and analysts of the future
BP Educational Service
BP’s flagship education programme, the BP Educational Service, is helping to close the STEM skills gap through its high-quality classroom resources, developed in response to new research into how students engage with STEM
Our programmes and partnerships
Find out about our research and development programme with King’s College London, our high-quality teaching resources, our annual STEM competition for 11-16 year olds and our employee volunteering programme in schools
Solving the STEM skills challenge
BP’s women’s network in London and Deutsche Bank’s gender D&I network hosted an inspirational event for employees and local students to explore the theme “Finding the formula – solving the STEM skills challenge together”
Do scientists give science a bad name?
Building appreciation for the role science skills have in multiple jobs could boost the take up of STEM subjects
