Why become an Ambassador?
How to become an Ambassador
For those in the UK & Northern Ireland, CIOB has partnered with STEM Learning, enabling our members to sign up as CIOB Construction Ambassadors. STEM provides a well-established platform for connecting with schools and colleges, a funded DBS process, induction training and over 200 Construction and Built Environment resources for most secondary and FE college learners.
Through the platform, ambassadors can offer their time/level of involvement. Educators then post requests for one of the volunteers via the online platform.
When signing up for the first time, we ask our members to state they are part of the CIOB so we can keep track of their activity and impact, as well as the opportunity to communicate with our ambassadors.
Think Construction resource pack
Think Construction is a resource pack for Construction Ambassadors to take into their local schools and encourage young people to consider the construction sector as a career destination. The content has been shaped by research carried out with young people to understand their perceptions of the industry, as well as input from teachers and industry advisers.
