About Student Progression Team Ambassadors

You will work closely with Year 9 and 10 students by delivering interactive workshops in schools across Coventry or Warwickshire.

The Role

  • Attend an in-school launch event to find out more about your school and meet your pupils
  • Plan and deliver six to eight hour-long mentoring sessions in a local school
  • Support an end-of-programme campus visit day
