About Us

Our Approach

Wigan S.T.E.A.M is strategically designed in response to an education system and social structures that are failing to provide learning opportunities, enriching social spaces, and collaborative working environments that children, young people and adults need in order to lead rich, fulfilling and empowered lives. Built on the 7 C’s of learning developed by Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas – confidence, curiosity, collaboration, communication, creativity, commitment and craftsmanship – this project is an intervention that will equip people with the creative resilience and digital capacities to navigate the workplaces of the future with confidence and competence, and to have the critical thinking skills to adapt, respond and innovate throughout their lives.
