Description

The School and College Engagement Team offers this support in numerous ways by working directly with students, supporting schools and recognising and awarding local pupils on their successes.
 

Ambassadors are valuable in aiding pupils’ awareness of Higher Education and raising their aspirations and in doing so supporting student’s applications to Higher Education.

Ambassadors are trained in mentoring and study support techniques, undertake Health and Safety and Equality and Diversity training, have DBS clearance and have undertaken a session in child protection awareness. All have experience in classrooms prior to starting at university, and many of our Ambassadors go onto teacher training courses or postgraduate study. The Ambassadors will assist The Outreach Team in a range of events, activities and talks across our campuses and in your institution.

We support local schools and colleges by providing undergraduate Ambassadors to support and mentor students in their studies, build confidence and aid career aspirations.

The teams work both on campus and in partner schools, delivering a wide range of events, designed to raise aspirations, attainment and application of students to CCCU. Outreach Ambassadors assist staff with the delivery of events, working with children from ages 10 – 18+ encouraging involvement, answering questions, delivering tours, assisting with specific activities and speaking about university life and courses. Student Recruitment Ambassadors work with students in year 10 upwards and directly promote Canterbury Christ Church University.
