Access Aspiration: Student Ambassadors
Our Student Ambassadors are a passionate group of young people currently participating in the Access Aspiration programme. They help in championing the importance of careers advice, work experience and academic studies amongst their peers and also represent their Sixth Form at our meetings and events. They play an active role in elevating youth voice and produce engaging content on the issues that matter most to them. Scroll down to view some of their content.
