How it works

Do you have students aged between 13-19 who are considering a career in STEM and would like to know more?  This is an opportunity for them to chat online with a chosen mentor from the sector who will be able to answer questions they may have about pathways, what a career looks like and next steps.

This programme is being run across the country with a specific focus on areas recognised as having a regional STEM Skills inequality.  SATRO is the regional partner for the London area (inside the M25).  

We are inviting interest from teachers who can identify students with a specific disadvantage to their learning eg. low income, SEND, known to social services, mental health, first generation university candidate (full details provided in link below).
