STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
The Education Business Partnership - South West (EBP-SW) are the contract holders for the STEM Ambassador programme and CREST Awards in the Devon and Cornwall region.
STEM Ambassadors are volunteers who help teachers inspire young people (aged 5-19) in STEM – they can do this in a variety of ways including offering careers advice, helping with classroom activities and helping with extracurricular activities such as clubs, challenges and competitions.
The STEM Advisory Service
The STEM Advisory Service provides secondary schools with free, impartial advice and guidance on a wide range of STEM E&E activities, helping them to identify which opportunities can best inspire their young people in STEM
The programme is coordinated nationally by STEM Learning. The organisation aims to bring the world of work to the classroom, shedding light on and demystifying science, technology, engineering and mathematical jobs, and their impact on our everyday lives.
