Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors represent student life here at Hartlepool College. They are student volunteers who help around the college in several ways and they demonstrate how important going the extra mile can be for yourself and for your community; proving every year why Hartlepool College is a great place to grow as a person while you gain qualifications. With multiple events under their belt, we have ambassadors that return every year to create student-led activities that appeal to all learners.  

Why become a student ambassador? 

  • Hands on experience you can add to your CV and UCAS application 

  • Develop your soft skills such as communication, teamwork, confidence

  • Meet new people around the college including members of staff and other students.

“I have really enjoyed my experience as a student ambassador because it’s really helped me with my confidence.” Courtney – L1 Dip in Intro to Health Social Care & Children’s & Young Peoples Settings.  

 

Annual events our learners can get involved in include:

  • Freshers fair
  • Christmas Jumper Day charity event
  • Children in Need charity fundraiser
  • Sports Relief
  • Red Nose Day charity fundraiser
  • Worker’s Memorial Day service
  • Remembrance Day service
  • Helping out at open events
  • Visiting local schools talking to students about college life

The Ambassadors meet frequently (with free Pizza!) and are supported by professional staff trained in working with young people, to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Ambassadors are recruited throughout September with meetings starting in October, so if you want to get involved speak to Student Support or keep an eye out for events and recruitment stalls in September!
