    For Teachers

    We have over 1,250 approved STEM Ambassadors on our system who have been DBS checked and approved who can offer time and support to promote STEM subjects and careers to young learners.

    These ambassadors come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines, both graduate and non-graduate, academia, industry and business but all share a passion for STEM.

    This is an invaluable and FREE resource for teachers, helping you to deliver the STEM curriculum in fresh and innovative ways.

    STEM Ambassadors can support schools through a range of activities, for example:

    • Hosting a workplace visit for pupils / teachers
    • Student work experience / work shadowing
    • Nuffield Bursary Project
    • Assisting with Interview Skills Days
    • Delivering STEM Subject Talks, Careers Talks or Assembly Talks
    • Facilitating a practical STEM demonstration or activity
    • Acting as a STEM mentor for a team of pupils entering a regional or national competition
    • Returning to their former school as a positive STEM role model
    • Supporting a STEM Club Activity
