Here to help
you settle in
Nervous about starting college? Student ambassadors are here to help.
Starting anything new can be a daunting and difficult experience. Moving away from home to a new town, whilst starting a new course can result in lots of questions.
Will I fit in? Am I going to make any friends? How will I know where to go? Will there be anyone to help me if something goes wrong?
That’s where RNC student ambassadors come in. Having someone who has been there and knows exactly what you are going through can really help, with many ambassadors having specialist personal experience skills.
Student ambassadors are trained to deal with a range of issues that they may encounter which includes things like:
finding new friends
engaging with other students
and much, much more to ensure you settle in as quickly as possible.
Other student ambassador duties
The initial focus for student ambassadors is to help and support new students as they settle in to College but other tasks given can vary dependent on individual areas of interest. However, in general, ambassadors are asked to:
attend a short training programme to prepare for the role
help out at the New Student Conference
meet and greet new students over the arrival week
help plan Induction Week
help with induction sessions, supporting staff and students
continue to support students into the first year of their studies
refer student mentees with particular issues to an appropriate member of staff
represent the College in a positive manner
If you choose to become a student ambassador, apart from feeling good about helping others, it will also provide a great opportunity to gain valuable transferable and employability skills.
