Love your College? Become an NWRC Student Ambassador
As a Student Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to represent the College and promote its benefits to prospective students and young people. Student Ambassadors undertake leadership roles while making positive contributions to the College.
You’ll be a role model for current and future students, as well as the wider community by helping to showcase College life, facilities and courses. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to support and promote upcoming College events and activities. You’ll gain experience and develop skills that will not only look good on your UCAS form and CV, it will also impress employers.
We are looking for students to represent NWRC as Student Ambassadors and inspire young people. As part of the Student Voice Initiative, we want to hear from students who have an interest in getting involved in wider college life and maximise the support on offer when challenges arise.
Student Ambassadors share their experiences of what it’s like to study at NWRC with prospective students, their families and teachers. They will represent NWRC at events on and off-campus, with members of staff or with other Ambassadors. The number of people they engage with can vary from a handful to hundreds depending on the type of event.
Below are the types of events that Student Ambassadors will help with. You may have experienced some of these events yourselves when you applied to NWRC.
