STEM Learning and the British Beauty Council are on the hunt for STEM ambassadors. Could you inspire beauty’s future talent?
To kick off British Beauty Week, the British Beauty Council is launching the Future Talent Programme alongside STEM Learning. The initiative will begin by showcasing the diverse range of careers within the beauty sector that rely on basic science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) qualifications.
This comes after the signing of a trailblazing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two bodies in July 2022. This secured the development of the first dedicated beauty-related resource for secondary schools, showcasing and demonstrating the enriching careers across the sector.
As you know, all four corners of the beauty industry rely on science, technology, engineering and maths. Whether its product formulation, sustainable packaging implementation, website design, supply chain efficiency or the various careers in-between, personal care couldn’t exist without STEM experts.
A key expectation set out in the MOU was the development of a British Beauty Council Ambassador programme to run alongside the educational resources, films and extra-curricular activity.
That’s where you come in. Do you have what it takes to be a STEM Ambassador?
The British Beauty Council welcomes dynamic individuals and brand representatives covering job roles across STEM subjects to find out more about becoming an ambassador at the STEM Ambassador Summit this British Beauty Week.
Be the first to see the highly anticipated Future Talent films featuring Jamie Genevieve, The Welsh Twins and The Plastic Boy. Then, Katherine Mathieson from the Royal Institution will host a panel about the changing roles within STEM and beauty with three special guests.
STEM Learning works in collaboration with the UK Government, large and small employers, organisations and educational establishments to deliver positive STEM interactions for teachers, young people and beyond, with an aim to provide a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK. Throughout the digital event, representatives from STEM Learning will share all of the information you need to get involved.
Sign up today so that you can play a role in ensuring clear STEM career pathways are promoted to young people. This will lead to a continuous flow of new talent into the sector which will maintain the UK beauty industry’s global reputation at the cutting edge of innovation.
