STEM Ambassador

For Teachers and Parents

STEM Ambassadors volunteer their time and expertise to promote STEM to young people in original, creative, practical, and engaging ways. At the STEM Ambassador Hub North Midlands (Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire), South & East Yorkshire, we look after almost 3000 brilliant and inspiring volunteers supporting the STEM curriculum in schools, raising awareness of STEM careers, and supporting STEM activities in the community. STEM Ambassadors cross all ages and backgrounds, representing a vast spectrum of different employers.

STEM Ambassadors make an impact by:

  • Supporting learning: help young people to understand the real world applications of their learning
  • Illuminating careers: showcase different roles and pathways into industry, raising awareness of important skills in the workplace.
  • Raising aspirations: help young people meet a wide range of inspiring role models, encouraging them to think about their future.
