About Us

CSW, a not-for-profit social enterprise. We deliver a range of services nationally, with a specific focus on the South West. We provide contracts that support businesses, young people and adults through key transition points. We deliver services that build aspiration and turn it into achievement, unlocking potential and developing individuals and organisations.

Delivered by CSW Group, the Big Bang Fair South West is the largest celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) in the South West. Over the last year our South West programme has reached over 15,000 young people!

In 2020 we will host the Big Bang South West at Westpoint Arena Exeter, alongside the Big Bang @ Weston in April and look forward to welcoming 12,000 visitors over 2 days - a first for this event! Our aim is to raise awareness of the range of STEM careers available to young people and the routes into those careers. We want to inspire young people with the possibilities, give them the chance to get hands-on with STEM and help them engage with people actually working in those industries. We know that interaction with employers makes a difference to young people and the career choices they make. The Big Bang South West provides an incredible platform for the next generation of engineers and scientists to meet with some of the largest, most prominent and most exciting STEM employers across the region and beyond!

Big Bang @ Weston is a fabulous 2 day event in April, at the Winter Gardens. We invite you to be a part of the Big Bang South West, to showcase what you do, engage with your potential future workforce and share your expertise with educators and parents. We would love to speak to you, please get in touch.

Our 150-strong team is motivated by the belief that support means more than a shoulder to lean on. We provide each individual with unfaltering attention, empowering them to make a lasting positive change. Our approach has enabled thousands of people to access learning and employment over the last 20 years.
