Becoming a Sherpee
The next step for those studying Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths-related subjects at school, college or university.
Through this experience I haven't gained just my assigned sherpa but many others who I had the chance to network with, exchange tweets with and who are there when I need them for advice on which route to take. If you lack confidence in your own ability, are unsure of which direction to follow up after college or university and you are willing to complete and research the things your sherpa asks of you the benefits of the scheme are huge...take the opportunity and you will not regret becoming a Student to Stemette Sherpee.

You'll have regular meetings with your Sherpa to plan, discuss and implement a specific career discovery strategy which will help you maximise the impact of each step you take towards your STEM career. Our Sherpas are DBS checked and work in a STEM-related role or have studied a STEM subject, and have a diverse set of backgrounds and interests. Your Sherpa will have a 'MeetGuide' to work through with you which aims to focus your career activity and give you the best experience for the short time you'll spend together. After each session, you'll need to report back on progress via OtotheB.
