Patient Partners are members of the public who assist in the practice and learning sessions by being available to speak to and be examined by our students. There is no prior training or experiences necessary to be selected to join the Programme, all we ask is that a Patient Partner be willing to help, reliable and most importantly have a good sense of humour!
Patient Partners may role play a health problem from a scenario (short description of symptoms and how they have been affecting you, as well as a social and medical history) so that medical and dental students can practise interviewing patients away from the hussle and bussle of a busy hospital ward. Patient Partners may also be used for non-invasive procedures/examinations (for example, the taking of a blood pressure, listening to a patient’s lungs or having joints examined/put through normal movements).
There is no prior training or experiences necessary, all we ask is that you are willing to help, reliable and most importantly have a good sense of humour! Good support is provided to all volunteers and all help makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

The STEM Ambassador Programme is a nationwide scheme dedicated to getting more young people interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects leading to an increase in young people pursuing STEM careers.
The most valuable tool young people have at their disposal when considering future career paths are the people around them, and we believe that STEM Ambassadors can be their greatest source of inspiration.
Do you work in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) industry? Do you have a passion for a particular STEM subject? Are you interested in passing this information onto young people?
If the answer is yes, become a STEM Ambassador! STEM Ambassadors are volunteers that aim to inspire young people to become interested in STEM subjects and consider a career in a STEM industry.
You could help run an experiment or design your own. You could mentor students in a variety of subjects or get involved in a careers event. You could help run an engineering project or design some fun maths games. You could set up a STEM club or run a tech evening at a brownie/cub group. There are lots of options!
If you are interested please register on the database db.stemnet.org.uk or check out the website www.aberdeensciencecentre.org/stem-ambassadors/ . If you have any queries please feel free to contact me at email@example.com . Once you have registered, you will be required to attend an induction where you will complete a PVG – Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme application along with meeting other new STEM Ambassadors. We hope to hear from you soon.
As the requirement to be able to use technology increases, many individuals find themselves excluded from the opportunities available as a result of their lack of digital awareness. In order to address this inequality I am looking for digital awareness volunteers, who you would be required to attend local sessions throughout the city showing members of the public how to use and get the best from their own digital devices.
In addition to this, along with other volunteers and staff you would represent Adult Learning at various Digital Awareness events. These sessions and events would be on an ad hoc basis at times convenient to the volunteers.
Good training and support is provided to all volunteers.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference with people and local communities in Aberdeen. All help is greatly appreciated.
