About us

Future Morph has been created to show that studying science, technology, engineering or maths beyond the age of 16 isn’t just a one track road to becoming a scientist or engineer – the skills and knowledge you gain are valuable in almost any career and will make you very employable.

Aims

Studying science and maths at school can help you no matter what job you go on to.

Future Morph has been set up to show that studying science, technology, engineering or maths beyond the age of 16 isn’t just a one track road to becoming a scientist or engineer – the skills and knowledge you gain are valuable in almost any career and will make you very employable.

We hope that this site will help people explore the range of careers on offer and think about where their future might lie. We have also tried to signpost useful resources for specific subjects or disciplines. If there are careers resources or information that you think we should know about please contact us.

Who runs this site?

Future Morph was launched in November 2008 by the Science Council as part of the ‘Careers from Science’ initiative.  Our members include the Society of Biology, Royal Society of Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Association for Science Education, British Computer Society and the British Psychological Society. See below for a full list.

However, this project was developed through collaboration with many other organisations including the Department for Education, EngineeringUK, Royal Society, Careers Research Advisory Council and the Wellcome Trust. A full list of partners and contributors is below.
