Application details

When applying, consider your areas of interest, the sorts of activities you would like to do, and how often you'd like to do them. It would also be helpful to think about whether you are looking for a local partnership or if a long-distance partnership is preferable that involves online engagement rather than regular face-to-face time.

Child safety requirements

When you apply for STEM Professionals in Schools in the Education Portal, you will be asked to agree to comply with our Child Safe Procedure.

For STEM professionals, this includes obtaining a Working With Children/Vulnerable People Check (WWCC/VP) and a National Police Certificate (NPC). We can offer support for you to obtain these, and cover the costs of the checks.
