Volunteer as a STEM Ambassador

Please note: The STEM Ambassador Hub are now working from home and here to support you with remote engagement. We encourage all STEM Ambassadors, teachers  and employers to get in touch to find out how we can support you. 

If you wish to become a STEM Ambassador, you can still register and complete training.

Anyone who works, studies or conducts research in a STEM field can volunteer as an Ambassador and inspire the next generation of STEM professionals.

From app designers to meteorologists and healthcare professionals, our STEM Ambassador volunteers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and work in a vast number of fields. What they all have in common is the use of STEM in their occupation or studies.

Being a STEM Ambassador is all about inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals with your knowledge, experience and passion. Ambassadors volunteer a little of their time each year to support school and non-school groups, helping to get young people fired up about STEM subjects and careers.

What do STEM Ambassadors do?

As a STEM Ambassador, you’ll be able to access opportunities and requests from teachers, schools and non-school groups via regular updates from the Trans-Pennine Hub. Alternatively, you can put forward your own ideas.

There are plenty of ways to get involved—you could be working side-by-side with students in a lesson, giving a careers talk, providing support to teachers and school governors, or helping educators make connections with STEM employers.

How we support you

Our team will support you through the recruitment and induction process, offer flexible opportunities that fit around your life and work, and provide access to ongoing training and advice.

How to become a STEM Ambassador

If you have skills or an interest in STEM, and think you would enjoy volunteering and sharing your knowledge with young people, then you could become an Ambassador. You need to be over the age of 17, but the most important qualities required are enthusiasm and the ability to be a positive role model for STEM subjects and careers. All we ask is that you take part in a least one activity every 12 months.

To register, visit the STEM Learning website and fill out the application form.

Across the Trans-Pennine Hub we have over 2,500 STEM Ambassadors, drawn from a national network of more than 30,000 dedicated and inspiring volunteers.
