What is a Go Construct STEM Ambassador?

Go Construct STEM Ambassadors are construction professionals who act as the face of the industry for young people.

Ambassadors often provide the first introduction to the construction industry for young people, delivering a life-changing impact on their future career decisions.

Ambassadors engage with young people across the UK, from schools and workplaces to careers fairs and events, sharing the fantastic opportunities available in the industry.

What does a Go Construct STEM Ambassador do?

Go Construct STEM Ambassadors bring the construction industry to life. They engage with young people at educational events across the UK to raise aspirations, illuminate career options and support learning.

Ambassadors lead a wide range of activities, including:

  • Running a trade stand at a careers fair, answering questions and handing out leaflets
  • Delivering a talk, sharing your experiences of getting into and working in the industry
  • Leading practical sessions or workshops, giving young people a taste of life in construction
  • Providing one-to-one mentorship to someone who is just starting out
  • Helping teachers to develop curriculum resources and activities 
  • Network with likeminded professionals, developing your career as an ambassador.

Being a STEM Ambassador is an honour and privilege.

Working with young people through STEM workshops has enabled me to share my knowledge and passion for engineering and use it to inspire the next generation of future engineers.

This opportunity has not only allowed my professional development to grow but has enabled me to make valuable industry and education connections.

- Emily, STEM Ambassador
