Why be a GSE Champion?

Why be a Champion?

  • You will be an ambassador for the profession, championing the importance of Government Science and Engineering in your department
  • It’s flexible — you can decide how much of your time to allocate to it according to your needs
  • It counts as a corporate contribution: 5 days a year L&D, or 3 days volunteering
  • You will have access to bespoke L&D activities
  • Your opportunity to network with other Champions across government

What will Champions do?

  • Engage in STEM outreach activities as required, with STEM Ambassador training available
  • Build a GSE community within your department, working with HoSEPs as required:
    • Organise your own GSE events — use them to showcase your work, set up networking opportunities, registration drives etc.
    • Build a GSE community space on your intranet — share news, events and L&D opportunities
  • Communicate across GSE, write an article for our GSE blog and share your departmental news
  • Commit to the GSE Diversity and Inclusion pledge

For a taste of the sort of opportunities Champions can get involved in, take a look at previous newsletters that were circulated to the network:
