STEM Ambassadors: Got Time To Give Webinar
STEM Learning is hosting a Got Time To Give information session on Monday 4th September from 12:30 – 13:00 for you to find out about virtual tutoring for disadvantaged students with The Access Project.
The Access Project has been enabling young people from underrepresented backgrounds to realise their potential for the last 15 years and they encourage STEM ambassadors to volunteer as academic tutors.
– You can tutor a young person aged between 14-18 years, online, for 1 hour a week.
– You will be a core component in a unique programme helping to tackle education inequality and inspire the next generation of young people.
– You will help them reach their potential, grow in confidence and raise their academic attainment.
All tutoring is delivered online, through a purpose-built platform. Tutors have access to an extensive resource library and professional support from staff, as well as a comprehensive training programme.
Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds lost out on average 1.2 hours of education per day, during the pandemic. The Access Project works hard to level the playing field, by equipping their students with the right skills and knowledge, alongside their own talents, to help them get to the grades they deserve.
All About STEM works on lots of exciting STEM projects. As part of the STEM Learning family, we manage the STEM Ambassador Hub in Merseyside, Cheshire and Warrington, working closely with the regional Science Learning Partnerships in Merseyside and Warrington and Cheshire and Wirral.
We also manage the STEM Enrichment Partnership for the North West which includes STEM Clubs, ESERO UK (Space) and Nuffield Research Placements.
