For Stem Ambassador Volunteers

STEM Ambassadors

Welcome potential, new and existing STEM Ambassadors and those that are re-joining the programme.

Getting Started

The first thing to ask yourself before becoming a STEM Ambassador is: Am I passionate about an aspect of STEM?  If the answer is yes – sign up!  There are no other requirements.

To become a STEM Ambassador there are 3 steps:

  1. Create a profile on the website
  2. Complete the online induction
  3. Complete a PVG application

We will send you more information about steps 2 & 3 when step 1 has been completed.  The above process can take between 6 to 8 weeks to complete and all of the above needs to be in place before you can volunteer.
