Choices 4 All Ambassadors

Through funding by the National Lottery of £300,000 Choices 4 All is the natural progression from Cycling 4 All, though the original project had significant impact on the lives of disabled students there was a considerable need to expand the activities on offer to the student and wider community.

The C4A vision still entails to provide disabled students with an equivalent student experience as non-disabled students, promote Bradford as an attractive option to potential students and to promote inclusivity, accessibility and sustainability. This is done through a series of engagement strategies and by running a range of activities both across campus and within the community

Choices 4 All seek to connect with organisations to provide volunteering opportunities for students, our scheme also acts as a employability pathway to provide students with training, skills and confidence to improve their future ambitions. At the heart of the project is Inclusivity. We reward students volunteering by giving them the opportunity to gain qualifications outside of their degree and an employability certificate that has documented the training and volunteering hours they have done.

Further information about Choices 4 All can be found on their Facebook page.

STEM Champion

The University of Bradford’s STEM Ambassadors use their enthusiasm and commitment to inspire young people and the general public in Science, Technology Engineering and Maths.

STEM Ambassadors not only engage young people, they support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research. They contribute to their local community and at the same time boost their own professional skills, experience and confidence.

The roles focus on communicating scientific knowledge and ideas in a way that is accessible to all. STEM ambassadors do this in a variety of ways including mentoring, demonstrations, presentations, coaching and in a number of environments including in the STEM Centre, at schools, museums and exhibitions, STEM clubs and public events.

As part of this process, students will work on a reflective log of their employability capabilities and, with the STEM team, work on an action plan for development.

There are three levels of STEM Ambassador achievement:

  • STEM Champion
  • STEM Leader
  • STEM Special Award

A STEM champion helps support sessions through a variety of activities involving technical expertise in the STEM subjects and communication skills.

As the student develops in confidence and ability and completes 25 hours of activity they will be ready to take on more responsibility and can progress to STEM Leader level.

As a STEM Leader students must run activities for small groups or full classes of students and may be required to do some planning in order to successfully carry this out. They will also help new ambassadors to learn about the role and train them in the use of technical equipment required to do this. After a further 25 hours activity students are eligible to embark on the STEM Special Award.

An individual achieving the STEM Special Award has made a significant contribution to the planning, designing, promoting and organising of at least one STEM event, along with the organising and training of other ambassadors to help in the delivery. They will have completed a further 25 hours, bringing their overall STEM Ambassador activity to a minimum of 75 hours.

Employment capabilities developed

Varies between levels, but a STEM Special Award would involve:

  • Management of Self & Own Performance
  • Professional Values
  • Communication & Presentation Skills
  • Team & Customer Working
  • Innovation & Enterprise
  • Financial Literacy

James Machell

Student Ambassador

The UK and Eire Recruitment Team are responsible for arranging and attending various events both on campus and at schools and colleges across the UK.  We regularly require the support of student ambassadors at events:

On campus events such as Open Days and Taster Days:

  • Various duties are allocated to student ambassadors at on-campus events such as carrying out campus and accommodation tours, meeting and greeting, signposting to other activities across the University, assisting with the set-up of the event, serving refreshments and sometimes delivering sessions such as ‘Student Life’ talks.

Off campus events such as HE Fairs and Careers Conventions:

  • These events usually involve manning a general UoB stand. Student ambassadors are required to engage with students and parents at schools and colleges across the UK advising on the degree courses offered at the UoB, as well as general student life at Bradford.

UCAS exhibitions:

  • These are large events held around the country and are typically quite competitive in nature.  Ambassadors are required to engage with high volumes of students and promote the University of Bradford as well as the city of Bradford.  The University of Bradford collects student data at UCAS exhibitions for all students who approach the stand, ambassadors are given targets for the number of leads they are expected to obtain at each exhibition.
