Graeme Rough

Graeme is the Co-Director and Co-Owner of Saturday School Ltd.  As well as managing the tuition courses at Saturday School, Graeme also delivers the Physics weekly revision sessions, Easter classes and the SQA in a Day courses.  Until Spring 2019 he was Faculty Leader of Science at Wallace High School in Stirling and is now the Project Manager for the new and exciting Young STEM Leader Programme.  Before completing his university degree in Physics and subsequent PGDE, Graeme trained and worked in industry, spending six years as a Mechanical Services Engineer.

Graeme is passionate about linking higher/further education and work beyond high school into learning – raising participation and engagement in STEM among young people on a national scale is now his main objective. He works with organisations such as Education Scotland, Scotland’s Science Centres, STEM Hubs, Youth Groups and The Engineering Development Trust to create learning opportunities and projects for young people in Scotland.

“Ensuring that our young people in Scotland have the highest quality education, opportunities and support should be at the forefront of everything we do as education practitioners.  STEM in particular, is at the heart of everything and we benefit from STEM on an almost second-by-second basis.  That’s why I’m proud to support the next generation to explore and seize the countless exciting opportunities that exist in STEM”.
