Destination STEMM - Chemical Sciences
We are working with the Royal Society of Chemistry to recruit mentors from all sectors of the chemical sciences for an 18-month mentoring programme for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic year 12 students.
The aim of the programme is to inspire high potential chemistry students to continue pursuing careers in the chemical sciences. A mentor’s role would be to support the students as they navigate the transition from school to chemistry-focused degrees and pathways.
Why become a mentor?
As a Royal Society of Chemistry member with a range of experience in your field, you could be ideally suited to mentoring.
This particular opportunity would provide:
a way to share and use your knowledge that will help talented people to realise their potential
a chance to step out of your normal circle and gather fresh ideas
experience that will allow you to develop the way you support the next generation of chemists
the sense of wellbeing that comes with making a difference to someone’s life
What does the programme involve?
We would love to hear from you if you:
are MRSC or FRSC, and based in the UK or Republic of Ireland
can attend one two-hour session of mentor training in January
can meet with your mentee once a month for at least two hours during their academic year, to provide academic, professional and pastoral support. This might include helping with UCAS submissions, preparing for interviews or a visit to your workplace
You will also be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
Please register your interest by 17 January 2022 through the our application form.
We will be recruiting mentees for the programme and more information can be found here
