MRATHS Supports Education
Two of our committee and several members are registered STEM Ambassador (https://www.stem.org.uk/stem-ambassadors) and we are quite active on the schools / education front. Being registered Ambassadors means that these individuals have Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance for working with children. One of our committee followed his career at “the establishment” is also a qualified teacher and has taught in both private and state schools, as well as being head of careers at one school for three years. This all means we can, and have, engaged with pupils and schools ranging from year 3s to year 13s (7-18 year olds).
