Completing this form

What to expect

We’re here to support you at every stage of your mentoring journey. Shortly after completing the form, you’ll receive a welcome email with useful information, like how to find a team and obtaining a DBS. You’ll also receive a separate email with details on how to access our online platform, Makerspace, where you can find helpful resources and mentor training.

Safeguarding

The safeguarding of young people participating in FIRST Tech Challenge is paramount. Whilst ultimate safeguarding responsibility rests with the participating organisation/school, we recommend all mentors hold a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate. We’ll send details about how you can get one to any mentors who don’t already have a DBS. Please familiarise yourself with our Safeguarding Policy.

 

Hey Game Changer – we’re so excited that you’re here! It only takes a few minutes to get started on your journey as a FIRST Tech Challenge UK mentor.

If you’re accessing this page from a network with strict security settings, like your office, you may have trouble submitting the form – for any problems completing it, just ping the team an email to gamechanger@firstuk.org.
