Quantum Ambassadors

Partnership with the National STEM Learning Centre and the University of York Science Education Group to deliver a comprehensive scheme of quantum-related CPD and classroom-based activities for A-level students and their science teachers, with the specific aim of promoting the uptake of STEM subjects, highlighting the benefits and applications of mature quantum technologies and signposting career pathways for science graduates. The scheme is seeking to increase awareness and understanding of the importance and relevance of quantum technologies to UK society, culture and the economy. The Hub has already completed a  a 2-year pilot phase of this scheme, during which the project partners worked closely with the other UK technology hubs using the science and technologies of the national quantum technologies programme as a context in which to develop and deliver an inspiring enrichment scheme across the UK. The scheme is UK wide – and following successful completion of the pilot phase, has now been funded for a further two years.
