How do I sign up to support Rail Week?


All volunteers who wish to support Rail Week events with young people must be STEM Ambassadors approved by STEMNET in order to take part.

a)    If you are already a STEM Ambassador approved by STEMNET…

Fantastic! Just fill in your details below and your local STEMNET Contract Holder will be informed of your interest in supporting Rail Week. They will be in touch with you as and when STEM Ambassadors are needed at Rail Week events near you.

b)    If you are not yet registered with STEMNET…

After filling out the form below, you will be invited to register directly with STEMNET as a new STEM Ambassador.

Becoming a STEM Ambassador involves attending a 2-3 hour induction session, passing a criminal records check and making a commitment to take part in at least 1 voluntary activity per year. Rail Week events will count towards this.

See the STEMNET website for full details about the STEM Ambassadors Programme:

In addition to being able to take part in Rail Week, becoming a STEM Ambassador will also allow you to access a range of other opportunities to inspire young people in STEM, as well as the additional training and support offered by the STEMNET Contract Holder in your local area.

Please note that the process from initial registration with STEMNET to becoming an approved STEM Ambassador typically takes 4-6 weeks, so register ASAP to maximise the chance of becoming approved before Rail Week starts.
