The Role of Student Ambassadors in collaborative outreach work: HEIs, schools & other organisations

Date: 04th July 2024

Location: University of Suffolk, Waterfront Building, Neptune Quay, Ipswich IP4 1QJ

University student ambassadors play a significant role in supporting the outreach activity of Higher Education (HE) systems in the UK and internationally. For outreach activity to be successful in supporting the progression of underrepresented groups there is a need for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to work effectively with schools and other organisations.

This event considers the ways in which ambassadors are working with schools and will include presentations on research evidence and practice from the UK and other international settings. Exploring the rich potential of collaboration and co-construction will be a focus of the day. Widening participation practitioners, student ambassadors, teachers, teacher trainers, trainee teachers, careers advisors and representatives from other organisations are all welcome to attend.

The event is part of an EU Erasmus+ Diploma focusing on developing partnerships and sharing practice in working with student ambassadors with universities in Romania, Turkey and France.

The event is fully funded and free to participants.
