What is it?
The STEM Ambassador Programme is a volunteer, role-model scheme that enables people with STEM skills, from business, industry & academia, to support the brilliant work done by teachers in schools, and by others in more informal education settings, to excite young people about STEM.
The STEM Ambassador Programme aims to connect young people with volunteers from a variety of STEM backgrounds, helping them to get excited about STEM subjects and to recognise the links between the school curriculum and possible future career pathways. It is a national, government-funded scheme, coordinated centrally by STEM Learning Ltd and managed locally by regional STEM Ambassador Hubs.
Volunteers from business, industry & academia, can sign up as STEM Ambassadors to share their expertise and experience with young people, encouraging them to consider whether STEM could be for them. To find out more about volunteering yourself, or getting your staff signed up as STEM Ambassador volunteers, click here.
Teachers, youth leaders and other organisations can request support from these volunteers for the STEM, or careers-focused, lessons or activities they are running. To find out more about requesting support from a STEM Ambassador volunteer for your activities, click here.
