Young STEM Leader (YSL), SSERC

The Young STEM Leader Programme (YSL) is an exciting new award which aims to spark greater interest and participation in STEM among young people in Scotland.

Young people have the chance to inspire, lead and mentor their peers through the creation and delivery of STEM activities and events within education establishments or local community groups.

The key aim of the YSL Programme is to facilitate the development of peer STEM role models to inspire more young people to develop an interest in STEM.

The programme is available as a non-formal, digitally badged/certificated version or as a formally accredited version.

The pilot has been taking place in centres across Scotland in preparation for full national launch in June 2020.
