At the heart of Better Learners Better Workers is the delivery of a high quality student Ambassador Programme in each employment sector.
Ambassadors are recruited at the end of Year 8 and are on programme throughout Years 9 or year 10 with pathway sessions and ‘Better Learners Better Workers’ graduation in the end of either year 9 or 10.
The programme operates with a small number of students in each school. Students have to apply and go through a formal selection process to become an Ambassador and participate in a sector programme.
Each sector programme includes a variety of high quality training:
- Team Building day
- Skills Matter day
- Employer Visits
- World of Work assemblies
- Employer encounters in school
Ambassadors have regular feedback and reviews and are awarded a Skills Passport to recognise their achievements.
In return, Ambassadors are expected to:
- Represent their school and their business sector
- Share what they learn about the world of work and the business sector with other students in the school.
Ambassadors have an opportunity to speak to a range of audiences, support the delivery of the programme and contribute their views to help shape and develop the programme for other young people.
