As part of the STEM Ambassador Hub Trans-Pennine, we can offer free, impartial advice and information to teachers about curriculum-enhancing STEM resources.

The STEM team at the National Railway Museum has lots of experience in supporting teachers, educators and group leaders to make use of free resources, including the STEM Ambassador programme.

The Ambassador programme allows you to access a network of volunteers who can support your work with young people—from 5 to 19 years old—within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

How to get advice

We're available weekdays between 09.00–17.00 on telephone and email. We also work closely with other STEM networks so you might see us at a local teacher meeting.

If you're part of a network of educators, please do get in touch, as we are keen to boost the engagement of young people with STEM in any way we can.

How to use STEM ambassadors

There are over 2,500 STEM Ambassador volunteers in the Trans-Pennine region who come from a variety of STEM careers and industries, with diverse backgrounds and skills.

All STEM Ambassadors take part in a comprehensive induction and receive an enhanced DBS check before working with young people.

STEM Ambassadors are a completely free resource, and can be used in a variety of ways:

  • careers talks
  • specialist topic talks or demos
  • mentoring
  • mock interviews
  • supporting STEM Clubs and hands-on STEM activities
  • STEM expertise enhancement for teachers and group leaders

You can request STEM Ambassadors to visit your school or group, or even connect via Skype and email. Find out more at the STEM Learning website.
