Wiltshire Skills 4 Success
Wiltshire Skills 4 Success helps support young people in Wiltshire to gain the basic skills and knowledge necessary to make a successful transition from schools into further education, training or employment

Role Model Network

Through this network we aim to link students with positive and inspirational role models to boost their confidence, self‐efficacy and long‐term employability.

Inspirational role models including those with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) expertise as well as authors, athletes, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, poets, members of the business community and volunteers are supported to visit a Wiltshire school or college.

These role models speak in schools across Wiltshire to inspire and motivate students, develop an aspiration and interest in STEM careers and offer an insight into the world of work. The visit involves an informal and supervised assembly‐style chat and could be about their job, overcoming barriers/diversity/life challenges or telling an inspirational/motivational story.

If you are interested in becoming a STEM Role Model and inspiring the future generation please get in touch with the Wiltshire Skills 4 Success team.
