STEM Online Mentoring Scheme

Run by the STEM Ambassador Programme and Brightside Mentoring we are launching the second national online mentoring scheme.

Designed to help young people explore their future career options in STEM, a six-week mentoring programme is open to 14 – 16 year olds with a 10-week programme for 16 – 18 year olds.

For those across S3 & S4, young people will have the opportunity to focus on career insights and chat to trained STEM Ambassadors via a secure and moderated online messaging system. Those in S5 & S6 will be mentored on ‘life after school’ – whether that’s Higher Education, Apprenticeships or preparing for employment.

Those taking part will receive:

One to one support and inspiration from a DBS or PVG checked STEM Ambassador
Training on how to use the secure and moderated messaging system
Support and resources to help them make informed decisions about their future.
All young people from across the UK are invited to apply, and there is no limit on the number of mentees being able to access the programme from any one school or college. Cohort start and end dates are outlined below: –

Cohort 2: S3 & S4, to run 24th Jan – 4th Mar (6 weeks) – OPEN FOR REGISTRATION

Cohort 3: S5 & S6, to run 24th Jan – 1st April (10 weeks) – OPEN FOR REGISTRATION

Cohort 4: S5 & S6, to run 4th April – 10th June.

Young people interested should speak to either myself or their Guidance teacher.
