So we have been celebrating our amazing Student Ambassadors today with a presentation with our Principal, Darren Hankey. Sadly some Ambassadors are leaving us, although some are with us for another year, so as you can guess, emotions were running high, they are an amazing asset and credit to the College and all should be proud of their achievements. Well done to all.!
Run by the students for the students, Hartlepool college’s Student Ambassador scheme gives learners the chance to plan and run events, take part in enrichment and ensure all students enjoy college life. This year the ambassadors celebrated successes in a range of areas. This included charity work, supporting college events as well as hosting a range of fun, awareness days. This included days on mental health, anti-bullying, internet safety, remembrance and worker’s memorial days as well as dedicated FutureMe events.
Here the students sourced fun stalls and guests to entertain students while they explored their ‘FutureMe’ options. The scheme has gone from strength to strength enabling ambassadors to gain both hard and soft skills that are relevant for their future success.
Speaking about the scheme, staff support member Sam-Amy Kidson talked about the ambassadors in detail: “This year has been brilliant. I have loved working with the students, challenging them to come up with great activities. They have really excelled this year, putting in events that are not only fun but relevant to the lives of students. Here in college, we are committed to allowing our students to express themselves and seeing the students set up a successful LGBT forum has been a real highlight of the year. Awarding them for their hard-work is also important and each ambassador will get a brilliant day out and vouchers from the college. We really value hard work and developing students in college and the scheme epitomises this approach. I and the students can't wait for next year where they will start their recruitment campaign with our annual Freshers fair!”
