Telent celebrates British Science Week

Today marks the start of British Science Week, the UK's biggest ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Telent has a growing STEM programme. Its STEM ambassadors actively encourage students to consider further study of STEM subjects and progression into related careers, inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals.

To be a STEM Ambassador is about engaging and enthusing young people about STEM and Telent is pleased to have around 70 STEM ambassadors currently working across the business.

Telent’s STEM Ambassador programme was introduced to enhance graduates’ continuous professional development while promoting the Telent brand. It aims to achieve this by exposing graduates to real life experiences and giving them the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and experiences in their field of work.

Over the next week, Telent will be celebrating some of the diverse people across the business in STEM roles. You’ll be introduced to STEM colleagues to hear more about their experiences as they embark on a career in STEM with Telent.

British Science Week is a fantastic opportunity for us to immerse ourselves into a world of STEM that we may otherwise not know much about. It’s crucial we all do more to encourage a diverse mix of people to consider a STEM career, a point we covered earlier this week during the Live Talk panel celebrating International Women’s Day. This investment will help us grow and retain a dynamic and varied workforce that’s reflective of the communities we serve.

“I’m thrilled that Telent colleagues have volunteered to share their experiences for British Science Week. The profiles you’ll see over the week provide a great insight into what a career in STEM is really like so please do take some time to find out more from Telent colleagues

Over the last two years it’s been a challenge to continue to promote STEM with everything moving to remote events. However, we have strengthened our partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions around the country which has been a great resource for communicating with schools and other STEM programmes.

The aim now is to make more of face-to-face events to help drive participation in STEM and expand our programme to work on a larger scale. The STEM team are really keen to become more active in its search for STEM events to participate in and develop a programme of events we can organise and run ourselves.

Spotlight on STEM with Obedience Aruna

I work on the NRTS project as an Apprentice Project Engineer. My day-to-day role includes writing safety-critical paperwork, going to site to have a look at the technology we’re installing and ensuring that the work we’re carrying out is completed to a high standard, all with the support of my manager.
