International work

The British Council Newton Fund STEM Education Programme supports knowledge exchange and partnership opportunities between the UK and partner countries on STEM education.

We partnered during 2016 with the Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology in Thailand to design and deliver a programme of training for volunteer STEM ambassadors.

The aim was to provide them with skills, confidence and understanding of pupils’ and schools’ needs as preparation for their contribution to the out-reach work of 13 regional STEM centres. The aim being to inspire young people about STEM.
