On the 27th November, CLW launched the new Learning Ambassador programme at The Quaker Meeting Rooms in Bristol. The all day workshop attracted 11 potential ambassadors from all over the city who came to find out more about the opportunity. They spent the day with development workers Edwina, Lucy and Richard and team leader Suzanne. Activities included considering the role of the ambassador, potential benefits, levels of involvement, strengths and gaps in knowledge and training opportunities. The lively session gained good feedback from the group, including:
“The worskshop was very well organised and all the information given by the development worker was clear.”
“There are lots of different roles we can take on”
“Excellent advice and clear interaction”
“I want to be involved”
“Very informative day”
“I want to help others to learn”
The ambassadors will now decide which tier of involvement they wish to have and complete their training and mandatory paperwork in order to begin their role. Options for involvement include assisting with events, supporting learners in class, job shadowing, curriculum development and interviewing staff.
