National Careers Week with The North East Apprenticeships Ambassador Network

The Apprentice Ambassador Network is a national network of current and past apprentices who share their stories to inspire others.

This community of inspiring, driven current and former apprentices are the voices for apprenticeships in their area.

The Apprentice Ambassador Network gives today’s apprentices the opportunity to connect with and motivate the apprentices of tomorrow. Training sessions are funded by the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), and Young Ambassadors can search events listing and select the activities that they are able to support with.

Apprentice Ambassador Network members are linked to nine regional networks, of which the North East is one, so as well as being linked in nationally, Ambassadors become regional leaders.

The North East Apprentice Ambassador Network has a Chair, currently Natasha Scorer, and Apprentice Ambassador Network members will receive invites to be part of exciting campaigns and projects.

Some members have presented at awards ceremonies, spoken at the House of Commons, been the face of national TV apprenticeship campaigns, featured in the Times Education Supplement, and been invited to other high-profile events.

NEAAN is always looking to engage with people who, like us, are passionate about apprenticeships.

Employers, trainers, managers, director, apprentices, former apprentices… if you have a passion for apprenticeships, you could be an Apprenticeships Ambassador or Apprentice Ambassador.

Apprenticeship reforms in recent years have encouraged many new and exciting businesses and sectors to be more actively involved in apprenticeships. We want our NEAAN to reflect this dynamic.

Ambassadors are selected because:

  • they commit to apprenticeships and traineeships in their workforce

  • they have high profile in their sector or geographical area

  • they represent a diverse range of employment sectors

Ambassador is a voluntary role, that supports and influences a wide range of key stakeholders including schools, colleges, employers and their own supply chains, trade associations and employment bodies.

They champion and support marketing, publicity and events to raise the profile of apprenticeships and they provide mentoring and support for employers looking to recruit apprentices for the first time.
