Our parent ambassador programme was developed as a new, local way to try and bridge the gap in engaging with parents with whom we know can play a pivotal role in informing young people’s study and career choices.

These short films feature four of our ambassadors talking about some of their experiences as parents in supporting a child into, and through university:

Denise talks about the value and positive influence an outreach programme had on her daughter.

Melanie provides a quick ‘how to’ and guide around student loans and finances.

Steve talks about the application process, and experiences of his child attending an Oxbridge University.

Sarah talks about the some of the challenges yet benefits of her children moving away to University.

Our parent ambassadors regularly attend options evenings and other school and community based events to share their experiences of choosing and applying to university as well as explaining student finance, for example. If you are hosting an event that you think that could benefit our Parent Ambassadors, or for further information please email our Schools Liaison Programme Manager, Fay Lofty.
