Volunteers wanted for a careers panel discussion with a twist!

10 March 2022

Led by DETI Skills, the STEM Ambassador hub for the West of England have partnered with the Institution of Engineering and Technology to host a series of online events in March 2022, and are looking for volunteer guests to take part.

What's my line?

The events are designed to enthuse Further Education (FE) tutors with the diversity of STEM activity happening in the region and showcase the career opportunities available for their students in modern STEM workplaces.

Guests will provide clues about their jobs, then answer yes or no questions as participants try to guess what it is they do. Then you can inspire them with the juicy details!

There are 6 events in total with each one linked to an industry of interest to the region. As a Guest you’ll take part in the event most closely aligned to what you do.

Line Up

  • Tuesday 15th March: Advanced Manufacturing
  • Thursday 17th March: Construction
  • Tuesday 22nd March: Life Sciences
  • Thursday 24th March: Healthcare
  • Tuesday 29th March: Computing & Digital
  • Thursday 31st March: Cyber Security

Each event will run on Zoom from 4pm – 5:30pm.

Get Involved!

If you are interested in becoming a Guest then please contact [email protected] with a brief description of who you work for and what work you do, and indicate which event(s) you think you would be a good fit for. The organisers will then follow up with you to confirm participation.

More details

Your clues will be provided beforehand to intrigue participants, then on the night you will have some time to go into more details: What is the impact of your work? Who does it help? How cool is it? How important is it? How much satisfaction do you get from it? Why should young people care about it? What’s the future of it?

The STEM Ambassador are also keen to know how your work intersects with sustainability – how your work contributes to reducing carbon emissions and helping societies work towards becoming carbon net zero.

You can just talk, but audio-visual additions are welcome too. And you can take part from wherever you think is most appropriate, as long as you have a reliable connection to the internet.
