The STEM Ambassador Programme is partnered with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to bring you the Go Construct STEM Ambassador scheme.

Through our collaboration, we aim to showcase the amazing career opportunities in construction and inspire young people to work in the industry. 

Go Construct STEM Ambassadors are both construction professionals and from the trades who act as the face of the industry for young people, inspiring them to consider a career in construction & the built environment through sharing their real life experiences. 
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 like-minded professionals, developing your career as an ambassador.

Not only is becoming a Go Construct STEM Ambassador a great way to develop your employability skills and become a part of a community, you’ll be helping to inspire the next generation of construction workers and change perceptions about the industry!
