Focus groups were carried out with female S5/S6 pupils (age 16 to 18 years) to test perceptions of Engineering as a career. Two key variables were compared; an individual’s score in terms of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD), and whether or not an individual was studying Physics at Scottish Higher Level.
