Curriculum in Scotland

As a STEM Ambassador, no one expects you to be an expert on the Curriculum.  The role of a STEM Ambassador is to inspire young people in STEM subjects, providing expertise that is not always readily available in the classroom.   STEM Ambassadors bring learning alive in the classroom, often using a real life context or application in industry or the world of work.

The teacher is the one responsible for delivering Curriculum For Excellence, and interpreting how they can meet E&O's (Curriculum For Excellence Experiences & Outcomes), and how STEM Ambassadors can help compliment the teaching and delivery.
