What does being an ambassador involve?
We work alongside STEM Learning, an organisation providing learning and careers support for STEM subjects, and as part of your ambassadorial role, you will also become a STEM Ambassador and complete an enhanced disclosure (‘DBS’ check) which is provided as part of your STEM registration. STEM also provides a short online induction course to get you started.
Once you are registered with STEM and are ready to become an ambassador, you will be given access to our VN Futures Ambassadors area on our website, where you will find resources and materials to guide and support you.
STEM Ambassadors make an impact by:
- Supporting learning – helping young people to understand the real world applications of their learning
- Illuminating careers – showcasing different careers, providing information on roles and pathways into industry while raising awareness of the skills that are important in the workplace.
- Raising aspirations – giving young people the opportunity to meet a wide range of inspiring role models, encouraging them as they think about their future.
