EngineeringUK are looking for teachers to join its 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 who are currently less likely to pursue a career in engineering.
What is the teacher network?
The network was established a year ago and consists of 12 teachers who meet virtually once every half term for 90 minutes. Meetings are scheduled around teacher availability and usually take place 4.00pm to 5.30pm on weekdays. The meetings act as an opportunity for the teachers to share learning amongst themselves and inform EngineeringUK’s work and the wider STEM environment.
We would welcome hearing from STEM teachers, non-STEM teachers, careers advisors and special needs teachers/SENCos and teaching assistants/learning mentors.
The network is 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 you work with. As a thank you for taking part, teachers who participate for a year will receive a £100 Amazon voucher at the end of a year of involvement. EngineeringUK are ideally placed to do this work because of our ability to influence STEM engagement activities run by a range of engineering organisations.
How to get involved
If you are interested in getting involved in the teacher network or want to find out more, please email Susi Farnworth, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at EngineeringUK on email@example.com by 5pm on 20 October 2021.
You must include:
- The name of your school and your role
- The age of young people you work with
- A very short description (max. 4 sentences) about why you want to be involved.
