Become a STEM Ambassador
Throughout the UK, STEM Ambassadors enthuse and inspire young people in STEM subjects, and open the doors to a world of opportunity that begins with STEM.
Through actively engaging with pupils and supporting teachers in the classroom, STEM Ambassadors provide living, working examples of how young people can apply STEM subjects to carve out interesting, successful and rewarding careers.
Coming from a broad range of sectors, our STEM Ambassadors are engaging, enthusiastic, dedicated and committed, and continually change young people's perceptions about STEM Careers and about the types of people who work in those roles.
Becoming a STEM Ambassador is a three-stage process:-
The final requirement in becoming an Ambassador is to attend induction training (Please see Induction training below for dates of next sign up sessions). This ensures STEM Ambassadors are equipped with basic knowledge and information that will help to enhance their work with schools. Training covers; the purposes of the STEM Ambassadors Programme, information about schools, advice for working with pupils and teachers and an explanation about the role in supporting STEM Ambassadors.
Following registering and attending a session to go through Disclosure checks and receive training, you will receive an Ambassador badge and ID card.
