The Young Apprenticeship Ambassador Network (YAAN) is a group of past and current apprentices that are members of a local YAAN in their region.
The core purpose of the YAAN is to grow and expand the apprenticeship programme by engaging with and providing information on apprenticeships to young people through a number of different activities and events, including schools/6th forms and young people in school academic years 11-13.
The role of the ambassador is to promote apprenticeships and inspire other young people by describing their direct experience.
Who can join the network?
We need apprentices aged 18 – 26 to join their local networks to help to inspire and engage other young people across England to consider an apprenticeship as a positive choice.
We are seeking representation from a diverse range of apprentices across Swindon and Wiltshire including:
• Different sectors and job roles
• A broad gender, ethnic and geographic mix
• Different levels of apprenticeships, including higher and degree
There are currently no Young Apprentice Ambassadors registered in Wiltshire and we want to change that!
As an ambassador you will be invited to regular meetings to share and promote experiences and activity across the South West region and nationally, you may also be invited to talk to other young people about your apprenticeship journey and help them to make informed choices. There are regional and national awards as well as a graduation event held each year during National Apprenticeship Week.
