STEM for All

The STEM Ambassador Hub West England supports the delivery of a diverse and exciting range of STEM programmes for young people throughout our region*:

  • We support teachers and other member of staff in state-funded schools – whatever the STEM ambition is for your school, big or small, we can help you achieve it.
  • We provide guidance for community groups looking to include STEM activities and STEM volunteers as part of their programme of activities for young people.
  • We work with careers leaders and organisations providing careers IAG to help them work with our STEM volunteers to deliver a strong message about opportunities in STEM.
  • We promote the message that STEM is something everyone can participate in, both now and in the future. This might be through STEM specific career routes, as well as an engaged citizen.
  • We are committed to making STEM available to all young people, regardless of sex, disability, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
