Find sector focused pre-recorded panel presentations below.

Each presentation is from a STEM Ambassador about their career journey and lasts around 5 minutes. Either watch the presentation that interests you or watch the whole panel. 

There is also a selection of sector-linked videos and resources from our My World of Work Live partners to give you even more information about a career in STEM. 

These videos have been developed for secondary-aged pupils but some might also be suitable for P6/P7 pupils.
