Why is the STEM Ambassador programme good for me as an employer?
By supporting your employees' participation in the STEM Ambassador programme, you give them a brilliant opportunity to motivate young learners whilst developing their own communication, presentation and planning skills, and promoting your company to your local community.
How can my company get involved?
You can sign up any number of employees, from 1 to 1000! The only requirement is that they are interested in volunteering with young people, have some sort of background in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths, and are willing to take part in at least one activity a year.
Your employees could be involved in mentoring, company visits, classroom support (talks or practical activities), or big events like the Big Bang Fair South East. We send out a newsletter to all ambassadors every fortnight which details our current school requests - or you can always offer your services if you'd like to do something specific!
To sign up as a STEM Ambassador, you need to register at https://www.stem.org.uk/stem-ambassadors/employers- or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Once registered, all ambassadors must attend a short induction session and obtain a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check with us before they are considered an approved STEM Ambassador and can start volunteering.
It is always useful to find out what is already working well. Read our case studies, find out about the latest featured event or take inspiration from our event archive.

Thales supports the STEM Ambassador Programme as it supports the local community. We need young people to be given a strong foundation in science so that they are aware of the role of science and aspire to science-based careers. Our Graduate engineers are currently working towards either IEng or CEng so being a STEM Ambassador helps with their Professional Conduct Competencies as well as supporting the community!
