Are you a STEM Ambassador?

ISCVE would like to encourage you to make a difference to young people, your community and STEM education.

Becoming a STEM Ambassador brings a lot of personal benefits and also has a positive impact by:

  • helping young people to understand the real world applications of learning.
  • showcasing different careers, providing information on roles and pathways into industry, while raising awareness of the skills that are important in the workplace.
  • giving young people the opportunity to meet a wide range of inspiring role models and encouraging them as they think about their future.
  • being a useful part of your annual CPD programme, by preparing for a STEM event, as well as the event itself.

The STEM Ambassador programme is flexible, allowing you to volunteer in a way that suits you, it could be online or in person, in schools or in community groups, by supporting lessons or extra-curricular activities and working with young people or their educators.

Training and support is provided by a regional STEM Ambassador hub, and are on hand to give you ideas on how to help.

It is up to you to choose/offer the activities you have the time and feel comfortable getting involved with, the only commitment being to undertake at least one activity per year.

The STEM Ambassador programme is a great way to help boost your social responsibility and nurture the next generation in our industry.
