How to access STEM support

We offer free impartial advice and information to teachers about quality, curriculum-enhancing STEM resources.

The STEM Ambassador programme allows teachers and educators to access a large cohort of volunteer role models who will directly or indirectly support you to inspire young people between 5 and 19 years old within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

As part of the STEM Ambassador Hub Trans-Pennine, the STEM team at the Science and Industry Museum have lots of experience in supporting teachers and group leaders to make use of this and other free resources to maximise the quality and impact of enrichment activities.

How to get advice

We're available on telephone and email from 09.00–17.00 on weekdays in and out of term time, and work closely with other STEM networks—you might see us at a local teacher meeting.

If you're part of a network of educators, please do get in touch, as we are keen to boost the engagement of young people with STEM in any way we can.

How to use STEM Ambassadors

There are over 2,500 STEM Ambassador volunteers in the Trans-Pennine region who come from a variety of STEM careers and industries, with diverse backgrounds and skills.

All STEM Ambassadors take part in a comprehensive induction and receive an enhanced DBS check before working with young people.

STEM Ambassadors are a completely free resource, and can be used in a variety of ways:

  • careers talks
  • specialist topic talks or demos
  • mentoring
  • mock interviews
  • supporting STEM Clubs and hands-on STEM activities
  • STEM expertise enhancement for teachers and group leaders

You can request STEM Ambassadors to visit your school or group, or even connect via Skype and email.

To create a request for a STEM Ambassador to visit your school or group, please register for a free teacher or youth/community group account on the STEM Learning website.
