Abstract: The Young STEM Leader Programme (YSLP) is an important feature of the Scottish
Government’s STEM Strategy. YSLP creates culture change through developing peer role models
who challenge stereotypes and improve awareness and attitudes towards STEM. YSLP is having
a major impact on the quality and extent of peer support available across primary and secondary
schools in Scotland. Over 1200 Tutor Assessors, representing over 600 educational centres, have
been trained and certificated to run YSLP with representation from all Scottish local authorities. Some
4000 Young STEM Leaders are working towards non-formal and formal awards. By 2022, YSLP will
be available to all school pupils in Scotland.
