The Norfolk Network is a dynamic, entrepreneurial business and scientific community, based on trust and shared goals. We inspire, inform and connect, putting people together and making things happen, across the region and the UK. We are proud to work with Schools, Colleges and Universities to inspire students to become effective workers and business leaders through developing important skills for future life. The Norfolk Network are the contract holders for the Science and Engineering Ambassadors (SEAs) programme in Norfolk, where we recruit people with science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM) skills to support teachers in schools and colleges, by enhancing and enriching the relevant parts of the school curriculum. The programme is coordinated nationally by STEMNET and is managed by its UK network of local organisations skilled at linking education and industry.
The programme’s aims are:
- to bring real-life STEM examples to schools and colleges
- to improve educational achievement in STEM subjects by supporting teachers and students
- to excite young people about the vital role STEM plays in our lives
- to introduce the rewarding careers opened up by STEM qualifications.
