The Science Communication and Public Engagement Trainers’ (PET) network is a new open and supportive group for anyone involved in public engagement training. Whether you develop, deliver or commission training, or want to start, all are welcome.
The aim is to develop a community of practice to share learning, problem solve together, and build a collective evidence base to support the development of PE training.
The PET network is a member-led network, currently being supported by the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagment (NCCPE) in collaboration with the BIG STEM Communicators Network.

Launch Event and Swap Shop: The first event of the PET network was held on 9th June 2022 and focused on the relationships between universities and freelance trainers.
We swapped experiences, lessons and top tips for navigating systems and processes to engage more effectively, with the aim of developing a collective response to help ease the relationship between universities and freelance trainers.
