An exciting new IT Ambassador scheme backed by BT has been launched. Operating as part of the STEM Ambassador programme and aimed primarily at 14-19 practitioners and students, the IT Ambassador scheme offers schools/practitioners three ways to participate.
1. ‘Ask an industry expert’ – aimed at practitioners who have questions (big or little) that they would like to pose to those working in the telecommunications and IT industry.
2. On-line mentor support for students based around a range of IT & Business curriculum related activities/projects via a moderated webmail platform. All the BT mentors will have a CRB and will have undergone STEMNET and e-mentoring training.
3. Access to volunteer resource developers – need a presentation on how the Internet Protocol works? an example of an IT project that has helped to streamline part of a business? or some insight into how superfast broadband works? – then challenge our IT ambassadors to come up with a video, PowerPoint deck ,or whatever, that can help enrich the subject area.
Interested practitioners are invited to contact BT for more information by e-mailing email@example.com indicating which of the above they would be interested in. The three strands above are not mutually exclusive and can be run in any combination to suit individual practitioners/institutions.
Addiditional information for Teachers is available via the following flyer.
