Become a Student Ambassadors Today!
In the 2015/16 academic year, Stratford-upon-Avon College will be appointing a number of students to act as peers to their fellow students and prospective students.
What will the role involve?
As a representative of Stratford Upon Avon College you will often be the first contact people will have with our organisation. You will also provide an important role model to young people at a crucial time in their lives. Therefore it cannot be over-emphasised how important the impression is that you give. You have joined our Marketing to work with schools, colleges and the community, in order to encourage learners to consider progression to Stratford Upon Avon College.
What personal qualities do I need to be a Student Ambassador?
You will need to be an approachable, understanding and professional at all times. You will need confidence to be able to speak to a variety of people. You will need to be team players in order to successful coordinate open evenings and other events.
Are there any benefits to becoming a Student Ambassador?
Becoming a Student Ambassador will add considerable weight to your CV and to future UCAS or employment applications!
Once you have been selected you will receive a student ambassador badge and at the end of your position you will be presented with a certificate of achievement and a reference.
As a final reward at the end of the year all the student ambassadors will enjoy a trip out to celebrate all our hard work and achievement.
Would there be a member of staff to support me in my role?
Of course! You will never be left without the support and guidance from staff members and trained professionals. In addition to this, the Student Liaison Coordinator and Head of School & Community Liaison will be available during the week for any questions or concerns.
How long would I be a Student Ambassador for?
Once appointed, you would become a Student Ambassador for the remainder of the academic year – this doesn’t mean to say that you couldn’t reapply to become a Student Ambassador again the following year.
How do I apply?
You will need to fill out an application form indicating why you would like to become a Student Ambassador and why you think you would be a good candidate for the role. The application form is available here, Student Liaison Coordinator in Common room (DG2a) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications need to be made by 16th October 2015
