Meet our Engineering Education Volunteers

Please meet our IET Education Officers and IET Education Ambassadors

Generally, there is an Education Officer (EO) or Education Ambassador (EA) volunteering in each UK county, who can, upon request and availability, support local schools and youth organisations’ STEM activities including; careers talks, science fairs, and Girlguiding and Scout Association meetings.

Representing the IET in promoting a better understanding of engineers and the contribution engineering makes to society, they often working closely with local STEM organisations, including local STEM Ambassador hubs.

Utilising the education resources we provide, ranging from information on engineering careers to in person practical activities, assists with the aim of promoting STEM subjects and engineering careers to children and young people aged 4-19. They can also act as Advocates for the Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS).

All of our EOs/EAs are Enhanced DBS/PVG checked and receive mandatory training, including; Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk training, Code of Conduct, Data Protection, and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Guidance and support are also provided by the Education Volunteer Coordinator and Education Manager – Regional Liaison.
