This is the place to find out all about the support, training opportunities and resources available to support you in your role as a STEM Ambassador volunteer.

more Info

Volunteering as a STEM Ambassador is a great way to develop your own skill set and there are lots of training opportunities and resources available to help you get the best out of your experience.

The STEM Ambassador Handbook is a useful guide to keep on file. It provides practical information about getting started as a STEM Ambassador and how to get the most out of the programme for yourself as well as the schools, teachers, community groups and young people you may work with. 

In addition to the initial online STEM Ambassador induction training, we encourage volunteers to complete the ‘Inspiring Young People in STEM’ series of free, online training courses:

Resources for Activities and Promoting Diversity

Planning and Organising Practical Activities

Communication Skills for STEM Ambassadors

Feedback Tools for STEM Ambassadors

Alongside regular opportunities to connect with our Hub staff for general programme support, we sometimes run other training, focused on particular themes or run by partners. These will be advertised via your regular STEM Ambassador newsletters.

Several of our Ambassadors or their companies have previously done the WISE ‘People Like Me’ training which has been relaunched as ‘My Skills My Life’ and has training available for STEM Ambassadors or their companies.

The STEM Learning website has a whole host of resources available to support you in your role, whether that’s with activity ideas or careers materials and our own Resources page has some useful information too.

Whatever it is you feel you need to get the best out of your experience as a volunteer, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.
