In2scienceUK mentoring scheme

The University of Leeds is working in partnership with In2Science. In2scienceUK works with passionate STEM professionals to support disadvantaged young people to pursue degrees, apprenticeships and careers in STEM. Through an inspirational programme of research, skills workshops, mentoring and in-person experiences over the summer, In2scienceUK gives Year 12 students the opportunities they need to overcome the barriers in their way of becoming the next generation of STEM innovators and pioneers.

We are looking for science, technology, engineering and maths researchers to deliver two 45 minute mentoring sessions online and host a one-day workplace visit (Covid-19 restrictions allowing) for a small group of disadvantaged 16-18 year olds.

We will be holding a Q&A Webinar session on February 25th 2021. If you are interested in becoming a mentor and would like to know more, please follow the link in the drop down box below to sign-up.

It’s easy to support In2scienceUK’s mission by becoming a mentor. Make a difference to the prospects of these young people by sharing your own expertise and insights through online mentoring and a one-day workplace visit (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).

Sign up here and provide underrepresented students with invaluable support to help them succeed on their journey into STEM.
