Inspiring the Future   


Inspiring the Future is a free service across England where employees from all sectors and professions can volunteer to go into state secondary schools and FE colleges to talk about their jobs and sectors.




STEM Ambassadors 

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are integral to the UK’s success: the UK is the world’s sixth largest manufacturer, engineering turnover is around £800 billion per year, and whilst the UK makes up only 1% of the world’s population, we produce 10% of the world’s top scientific research. Despite this, it is remarkable to note that even though STEM graduates have the potential to earn amongst the highest salaries of all new recruits, employers are finding it difficult to recruit STEM skilled staff. 

The STEM Ambassador programme is free and enables those in STEM careers to be trained up and go into schools to talk about STEM, jobs in STEM and to help out with lessons.  If you or your colleagues/employees could be interested in this opportunity more information can be found at
