Join our growing network of teachers to have a say about STEM engagement, share learnings – and get vouchers as a thank you for your time.
We are looking for teachers to join our teacher network and influence engagement activities to enhance young people’s interest in STEM subjects, as well as helping inform EngineeringUK about how best to engage with young people from groups that are currently less likely to pursue a career in engineering.
What is the teacher network?
The teacher network will hold a 1h online meeting every half term and all teachers will receive a £30 Amazon voucher for each meeting they attend.
The meetings act as an opportunity for teachers to share learning amongst themselves and inform EngineeringUK’s work and the wider STEM environment. It's an opportunity for teachers to help influence engagement activities which will enhance young people’s interest in STEM subjects and lead to greater career opportunities for the young people they work with.
How to get involved
If you are interested in getting involved in the teacher network, please fill out this quick form by 14 July. If you have any questions or want to find out more, please email Susi Farnworth, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at EngineeringUK [email protected].
We would welcome hearing from STEM teachers, non-STEM teachers, careers advisors and special needs teachers/SENCos and teaching assistants/learning mentors, working in KS3 and 4.
“Being a member of the EngineeringUK Teacher Network has enabled me not only to develop my own personal knowledge of resources and areas of focus within Engineering, but also to work with teachers across the country and see how other schools and teachers are working towards the same goal of developing student knowledge and experiences.
The speakers attending the meetings and resources have also been really informative and allowed the network to have a say in future resources which has been really helpful when accessing them.
A fantastic working group that I can highly recommend to support not only personal development but also that of students and staff across the engineering family.”
