The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) today (March 13th 2014) has strongly urged governments to encourage students to make careers in science, technology, engineering and maths to prevent a skills shortage in key industrial sectors, in a report ‘ Engineering our Future’.
Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, says that growth and jobs will depend on having a workforce that can exploit technologies and discoveries.
At CMA, our educational philosophy is in total harmony with these views and CMA ensures that through a unique combination of technology, creative media and activities students may become fluent and confident in the key mathematical concepts that underpin the syllabuses and free themselves of the shackles of rote learning where they may look at a much wider choice of career path.

It is also essential that we attract the creatively minded students who traditionally may have steered away from mathematically related careers to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) related career paths.
Through our innovative summer programmes, we address these issues.
