A popular Member Webinar on the SIP Ambassador programme was delivered in June. It introduced and updated delegates on the SIP Ambassador Programme. The programme was set up to inspire and engage young people into careers within the science based industries and offers many benefits to young people, employers and ambassadors alike.
The webinar set out the importance of high quality careers provision and introduced the UK Careers Strategy and Gatsby Benchmarks, as well as how the SIP is supporting this. To address the future STEM skills shortage more young people need to choose careers within the science industry and SIP Careers supports member companies in attracting the talent of the future.
With our bespoke Futures In Science resources and high quality training, SIP Ambassadors are supported in their engagements with young people and have the confidence in making these encounters worthwhile.
With over 500 SIP Ambassadors on board the programme is growing in success and the webinar providers a taster – or a refresher – of what you can expect to gain by getting involved!
