One of the ways we seek to make our Open Days welcoming is through the help of our Student Ambassadors. There are around 200 of these, and they take turns to guide students and family through Open Days and Applicant Days; they go into Schools and Colleges; deliver workshops at Staffs Uni and answer your questions from their direct experience.
This is only the second year we’ve run the awards.
The event was a collaboration between Paul Donnelly and Laura Knight and Jamie Leese
There were twelve section awards given out for different aspects of the ambassador contribution. Bertha Eke more than demonstrated why she won the prize for Enthusiasm, and as someone who has more than once arrived at events to find a ‘crisis’ in progress, I was tickled by Klaudia Szatkowska’s Make the Best of a Bad Job Award.
