Summer School Ambassador Application

Would you like to make a difference this summer by working on our Sutton Trust Summer School?
Each year, the Widening Participation and Outreach team runs several summer events which provide students from underrepresented backgrounds with invaluable insight into Higher Education. Owing to the current pandemic, and the change in how many of our events are being run at this time, we are only recruiting ambassadors for the Sutton Trust Summer School.
The participants consistently highlight the student ambassadors as what makes these events such a success. Feedback includes comments such as they "had the best ambassadors ever at Warwick. They truly cared about us".
It's not just the students who get a lot out of it - these events are a great opportunity for you to develop a wide variety of skills, such as teamwork, empathy, resilience and communication. Previous ambassadors have reported that "the ambassadors worked so well as a team and the kids were really thriving as a result. It was so rewarding!".
Working on this event will give you invaluable experience, skills and knowledge to talk about on future job or internship applications, and the WP team will be happy to act as a reference for ambassadors who have worked with us on residential events.
Applications are now open to current WWS and WP Mentors and will close on Sunday 11 April 2021 (inclusive).

Full details regarding the roles can be found in the document here.

Advice to applicants:
  • To ensure a fair assessment process, all applications will be anonymised before being assessed by at least two members of the WP team.
  • There will be no selection event so it is imperative that you give as much detail of your experience as possible.
  • Make sure you read the job description, and use your answers to explain how you meet the essential and desirable criteria.
  • Use your experience as a WWS ambassador to give examples, as well as other experiences outside of Warwick if applicable.

The University of Warwick is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks and an enhanced DBS check may be required.

To ensure appropriate staffing and the diversity of our team, we are also actively encouraging applications from male students and students from Widening Participation backgrounds.
