What do our Ambassadors say about the role?

"I gained lots of confidence whilst studying at Canterbury College and acting as a student ambassador. The skills I learned enabled me to perform well in interviews. A few months ago, I learned that I have been selected as a Civil Service Apprentice and will be working in the central government in London. I'll be doing this alongside studying for my Economics degree. I wouldn't have achieved this without the skills and experience I developed as an ambassador for the College."

-Camille Van de Wiele, Public Services student

 

"I have gained more confidence in public speaking and communication. I have also become better at working in a team, presenting and working well with a more diverse group of people!"

-Nabina Tamang, Science student
