Routes into Employment Events- What these are...

Routes Into Employment Events at schools have quickly become the Most popular in-demand careers events in schools. To an extent traditional careers fairs are fast becoming a thing of the past.

  • Routes into Employment events typically cater for a whole year group (actual year group depending on individual school's needs)
  • Routes into Employment are a bit like "careers speed dating", where in small groups of 3-4 pupils at a time they get the opportunity to speak to STEM Ambassadors.
  • Typically the school are provided with prompt questions for the pupils to use when speaking to a STEM Ambassador, and get the chance to ask simple questions about your career path, whether that be college, University, Apprenticeship Route etc. Questions vary but give Ambassadors the opportunity to tell pupils about your experience, subjects you studied at school, careers etc.
  • No preparation is required for STEM Ambassadors before these events, just a willingness to speak to young people who rotate every 7-10 minutes.
  • You are welcome to bring any company literature/stands if you wish, but equally if you don't have any, don't worry. Similarly if you are studying a STEM subject or just have a STEM interest but are not in active employment, that is fine to participate.
  • These events aimed at a whole year group rely on approx 25 STEM Ambassadors to allow the events to go ahead.

These events are also ideal for New or Novice STEM Ambassadors keen to engage with schools and young people, but are perhaps a bit nervous about carrying out your first activity.

You will also find some pictures on our Gallery Page of these events.

Calling STEM Ambassadors to support Code Clubs  

Want to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making? We’re looking for STEM Ambassadors to join a global network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for 9 to 13 year-olds in schools, libraries, and community venues.

You don’t need to be a coding genius to volunteer, you just need to be willing to learn some basic Scratch, Python, or HTML alongside your club. Code Club’s projects are easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn coding while creating games, animations, and websites.

 

There are currently over 6,000 Code Clubs in the UK reaching an estimated 90,000 young people each week. The sessions generally run for one hour per week, and the minimum commitment is 12 weeks. However, if you aren’t able to make time every week, you can team up with colleagues or friends and take turns.

Please get in touch if you want to get involved.

Contact details

Anyone interested should be sent the Code Club sign-up link jumpto.cc/STEMAmbassadors

And questions should be directed to Code Club - support@codeclub.org.uk


Arkwright Scholarships Trust: Experienced Engineers Sought as Mentors

Details

Could you help inspire a future leader in engineering?

The Arkwright Scholarships Trust inspires future leaders in engineering by supporting high-calibre, engineering-minded students (aged 16-18) over two years, as they study for their Highers.

The Arkwright Scholarships Trust are looking for experienced engineers to mentor these bright students during a critical time in their education. This is a great opportunity to hone your mentoring skills by guiding, supporting and inspiring a young engineer. Mentees value answers to general questions such as “How can I optimise my university personal statement?” as much as they would value detailed technical insights. 

Feedback received from scholars has often stated that Mentoring, for them, was one of the most beneficial aspects of their scholarship.

Mentoring can take many forms including face-to-face meetings, support through e-mail and/or occasional telephone calls. Arkwright is flexible about the form and time that any individual mentoring relationship takes.

Becoming a Mentor can be advantageous to you, because it will contribute towards Competence Area D of UK SPEC to help you achieve chartered engineer status.

The following schools in the STEM East region have pupils participating in The Arkwright Scholarships who are seeking a mentor:

Balwearie High School, Kirkcaldy
High School of Dundee, Dundee
The Community School of Auchterarder (2 pupils)
Perth Academy
Dunblane High School
Strathallan School, Perth
Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh (2 pupils)

If you are willing and able to help, would like more information or to discuss, please contact Kiran Thiara at The Arkwright Trust directly via: kthiara@arkwright.org.uk
Thanks in advance for your help and support!


STEM Careers Bank - Personal Profile

Details

We have received the following request from Jonathan Brown, who is the Primary Science Development Officer with Angus Council, and wondered if you would be willing to help?

Jonathan wants to develop a shared ‘STEM Careers’ bank which schools can use at assemblies or in class for ‘little and often’ career education.

The format is simply a picture of yourself with a wee blurb about what your job is like, what you had to study to get there, a bit about skills / attributes and why you like your job. 

You can see an example here: 

https://sites.google.com/view/angusprimaryscience/...

Jonathan is looking for individuals who are willing to get involved. All you would need to do is send Jonathan a picture of yourself at work or headshot with a small blurb similar to the one on the website. 

Please be aware that in sharing this with Jonathan, it would be shared across Scotland. 

If you are interested and would like to get involved, please contact Jonathan via:

Careers Fair- McLaren High School, Stirling, 18th January 2018- 2pm-6pm

I have had a request from McLaren High School who are having a Careers Fair on the 18th Jan 2018, from 2-6pm, to be put in contact with businesses who may be able to attend to inform pupils and parents about their business.

This event runs in conjunction with their S3 parent’s night and pupil option choices, and will allow both pupils and parents the opportunity to speak to businesses in order to inform their decisions on which subjects they would like to pursue.

I wondered if you can spread the word of this to your network? This will give businesses the chance to speak to parents and pupils about the jobs and training pathways into employment both within their organisation as well as the sector as a whole. A light dinner will be provided. 

I hope you can help; I am looking to be able to go back to the school with any contacts that are willing to help before the 7th December.

Thanks in advance.

Careers Evening- The James Young High School, Livingston

Thursday 1st February 2018

It is that time of year again where I ask for willing volunteers to attend our Annual Careers Evening.  In the past this has been a hugely successful night in allowing our pupils and parents S2-S6 to talk to colleges, universities and a variety of specific careers - the value of this event would not come to fruition if it were not for your commitment and support of our pupils.

This year our evening is on Thursday 1 February 2018 6 - 7.30 pm at The James Young High School.  Each college, university, organisation or career area has a small stall and parents and pupils simply will approach and ask questions.  

Please indicate by replying to this email if you will be able to support the event this session.  Late December/early January I will send official letters with further details.


Many thanks again in supporting our pupils and helping us develop our James Young Workforce of the future.

Careers Event, Bathgate Academy.  Thursday 8th February 2017

I have been approached by Georgina Scott, Business Partnership Coordinator at Bathgate Academy, to help her source employers for an employability event she is arranging for Thursday 8th February.

The event will be targeted at S3 pupils  in the afternoon (times tbc) and they are looking for employers from as many different industry sectors as possible to attend and chat to pupils about the opportunities in their sector (pre subject choice time).  They are then opening the event up to senior phase pupils (s4-s6) in the evening.

Is this something that could be put out to your Ambassadors?  STEM industries are definitely ones that they would like represented.

The schools has a couple of employer confirmations already and I have provided a few from my direct contacts, but they are looking for around 20/25.

Robotics Challenge- Dundee & Angus College- Arbroath Campus- Monday 12th February 2018

EngineeringUK are running 3 heats for the Robotics Challenge in Scotland in Feb and we have 1 in Arbroath on 12 Feb 18

    VENUE DETAILS

 On Monday 12 February 2018, the Tomorrow’s Engineers Robotics Challenge will run a heat at Arbroath Campus of Dundee and Angus College. 

The exact details are not yet confirmed but it will take a total of 20 mins including briefing and debriefing.  This will run 11 times throughout the day.

I am also looking for some slightly more senior people to judge the other elements of the competition

  • Team Challenge:  I see no reason why this could not be done by the STEM Ambassadors who run the activity.
  • Robot Design Presentation: The teams talk about what they learned in designing and building the robot.  Judges also ask some pre-set questions.
  • Formal Presentation:  The theme of the day is Humanitarian relief missions.  The teams will provide a short presentation based on this theme.
  • Table Top Competition: The teams have decided the robots around a table top mat which requires the robot to complete a number of tasks.  This is the main activity.

The college will also run a number of background STEM activities which I know they would love some assistance with if any Ambassadors might be interested.  For example, I can train someone on the day to run the Immersive Hybrid Reality which provides a virtual experience of standing at the top of a wind turbine – as a maintenance engineer.

Firrhill High School- Request for STEM Ambassadors to support S2 STEM Course- February 2018 - Sustainability & Global Citizenship

Myself and one of the maths staff at Firrhill High have been preparing a STEM course for our S2 pupils. We are currently designing the second rotation of the course which will run from November to April-ish. The overarching theme is sustainability and global citizenship, so pupils will investigate the issues with accessing clean water in the third world, design simple windmills etc and also rebuild Edinburgh City (on paper) after an imaginary disaster. We would like to include a visitor to do an activity that might loosely be based round this theme and wondered if the STEM Ambassadors could help? We have 11 S2 STEM classes. Some come at the same time during the week so there could be potentially 40 pupils for some sessions, although it would be easy to split this over 2 weeks if that was easier. Obviously it would be a big ask for just one person to come and deliver a number of sessions in one week when we are locked with the timetable and these sessions would be spread over a variety of days and times in that week.

Regarding timings – we had wondered about week beginning 5th February or week beginning 19th February 2018 (or a combination of both). The week beginning 26th Feb we had hoped to do some kind of K’Nex challenge, but I haven’t heard back from Heriot Watt yet, who I think used to run this. We had hoped to link this to Science week in March, but it just didn’t work around the stuff the maths department want to do. We have a big push on rights of the child and global goals so that will also be a theme running through the STEM course.

In terms of actual days and periods, it’s probably better if I just give you a list:

2x1/2 (40 pupils) – Tuesday 8.45-9.35

2x3/4/5 (60 pupils) - Wednesday 2.45-3.35pm

2x6/2x7 (40 pupils) - Tuesday 9.35-10.25

2x8/2x9 (40 pupils) – Friday 8.45-9.35

2x10/2x11 (40 pupils) – Tuesday 1.35-2.25pm

It’s not as big a spread of days or times as I thought it might be now I see it all listed. The groups are all 20’s, but more than one class comes at once. We could either keep them as one big group or split them if 2 ambassadors were available or do one group one week and one the other week.

Hope that helps with some specifics – please let me know if you need any more info.

Kind regards,

Helen Barley

STEM Ambassador Support: Maths Dept. at Musselburgh Grammar School

Details

Amy Thompson, who is the Principal Teacher of Mathematics at Musselburgh Grammar School, has been in touch to request STEM Ambassador as follows:

Amy would like STEM Ambassadors to run or support activities with pupils based round the type of work they do. Amy appreciates that this may be tricky because of the level of maths but thought that something around engineering, renewable energy, maths for science etc. might be feasible. 

Amy is looking for support the 2nd week in June 2018 and a Wednesday between 12:00 and 15:00 would be ideal if possible.

Potentially the S3 year group will be involved, encompassing a range of abilities, and who are about to start certificated courses. They will be 14 and 15 years old.
