The Process

Welcome to STEM Trust! We are dedicated to empowering primary school educators with STEM certifications to enhance their teaching abilities and inspire the next generation of innovators. At STEM Trust, we offer a seamless process for teachers to acquire STEM certifications, ensuring they have the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively teach STEM subjects. Let’s take a closer look at how the process works:

1. Sign up on GalactIQ Education:
The first step for primary school  teachers interested in obtaining a STEM certification is to sign up on GalactIQ Education which is a leading e-learning platform specifically designed to provide comprehensive STEM lessons and resources to educators. Through GalactIQ Education, teachers will gain access to a vast library of engaging STEM content, instructional materials, and interactive activities.

2. Start teaching STEM Lessons:
Once enrolled on, teachers can begin incorporating STEM lessons into their classroom curriculum. These lessons are thoughtfully designed to foster critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and hands-on learning experiences for students. By utilizing these engaging lessons, teachers can ignite a passion for STEM among their students and create a dynamic learning environment.


3. Teaching Progress:
As teachers progress through the STEM lessons on, they will track their teaching progress, documenting the number of lessons they have successfully delivered to their students. It is essential to ensure that teachers have a solid foundation in STEM instruction before pursuing certification.


4. Eligibility for Examination:
Once teachers have taught a specific number of lessons, they become eligible to take our STEM examination and earn a STEM certification. We offer three levels of certification: L1 Media Literacy Principles, L2 Programming Basics, L3 Advanced Tech. Each certification level represents a higher level of expertise and dedication to STEM education.

5. Taking the Examination:
Once teachers have met the requirements for a specific certification level, they can proceed to take the corresponding STEM examination. The examination evaluates their understanding of STEM concepts, teaching methodologies, and the ability to engage students effectively. Successful completion of the examination leads to the awarding of the desired STEM certification.


6. Benefits of Certification:
Obtaining a STEM certificate from STEM Trust offers numerous benefits. It enhances teachers’ professional credibility, showcasing their expertise in STEM education. Additionally, the certification demonstrates a commitment to professional growth and a willingness to adapt teaching practices to meet the needs of modern learners. It also provides teachers with access to a supportive community of like-minded educators and professional development opportunities.



Certification Recognition:

At Stem Trust, we understand the importance of recognizing and validating the expertise of primary school educators in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. Our certification programs are designed to provide teachers and schools with a globally recognized standard of excellence in STEM teaching.

In today’s interconnected world, it is crucial to establish a common benchmark for assessing and acknowledging the proficiency of STEM educators across different countries and educational systems. Our certification programs have been developed with this goal in mind, aligning with international standards and best practices in STEM education.

By obtaining our certifications, educators gain recognition for their knowledge and skills in delivering high-quality STEM instruction. These certifications serve as a testament to their dedication to professional development and their commitment to providing students with the best possible STEM learning experiences.

Global Recognition:

Our certifications go beyond national boundaries, offering global recognition of an educator’s expertise. They demonstrate that educators have met rigorous standards and have undergone professional examinations in STEM. This recognition holds value not only within their local communities but also in international contexts, opening doors to career opportunities and collaborations around the world.

In addition to individual teacher certifications, our programs also recognize schools as STEM-ready institutions. Schools with a significant number of certified STEM teachers receive a special badge, showcasing their commitment to providing high-quality STEM education. This recognition not only enhances the school’s reputation but also attracts students and parents who prioritize STEM learning as they seek institutions that prioritize excellence in this field.

We believe that certification recognition plays a vital role in elevating the standards of STEM education worldwide. By establishing a global standard for excellence in STEM teaching, we aim to create a network of educators and institutions dedicated to delivering exceptional STEM education experiences. Together, we can inspire the next generation of innovators, problem solvers, and leaders in the STEM fields.


At our company, we are committed to providing primary school teachers with the most effective and up-to-date STEM education resources. That’s why we have chosen to follow mainly the British STEM curriculum for the content of our examinations, which is recognized as one of the most advanced and comprehensive STEM curricula in the world. The British curriculum places a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills through hands-on learning and real-world applications. By following this curriculum, we ensure that our teachers are equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to provide their students with the best possible STEM education.

STEM curriculum per age group:

Key stage 1: Age 5-7

Pupils should be taught to:

  • understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • create and debug simple programs
  • use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
  • use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
  • recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
  • use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies
Key stage 2: Age 7-11

Pupils should be taught to:

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
  • use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
  • use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
  • understand computer networks, including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web, and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
  • use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
  • select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact
