DBS ID Check & Safeguarding Sessions

The next step after registering to become a STEM Ambassador is to do the STEM Induction, all STEM Ambassadors must complete an Induction irrespective of any previous experience working with children. There are two ways to complete an Induction:


Attend a STEM Induction – The Induction Course is approximately 2 hours long and provides you with an opportunity to meet your STEM Hub and we will answer any questions and provide additional support to those who want it. During the Induction we will cover all the do’s and don’ts of being a STEM Ambassador and explain in greater detail the sorts of activities that Ambassadors can get involved in. ID Checks are included in the full Induction. All registered Ambassadors will receive an email invitation to upcoming STEM Inductions.


Complete the Online Induction– Available via STEM Learning is the online Induction. It takes approx. 40 minutes and once you have completed all of the modules please complete this quiz: https://goo.gl/forms/Z0PlbGiXC8yjVCA73

Further information on getting the DBS Application process started will be sent to you after you have completed the quiz. To complete the DBS ID Checks you can either go via an External ID Validator or come to a DBS and ID Check session run by the Hub.
