Our work with local schools will continue to focus on the provision of teaching materials aimed at achieving an early interest in science and engineering related topics and involving teachers throughout the production of teaching materials and in researching what is required in schools. This ensures that our material meets the national curriculum.
Our dedicated team of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) ambassadors will continue to provide an ongoing varied programme of educational events to those schools in our travel to work area.
There are around 300 ambassadors at Sellafield and Risley. They are employees from STEM backgrounds who volunteer as inspiring role models for young people.
STEM ambassadors enable teachers to make links from the curriculum to how science, technology, engineering and maths are practiced in the world of work.
