Suffolk New College Ambassadors

Suffolk New College Ambassadors work alongside our Corporation to promote the educational experience of students, and to enrich the learning experience offered by the College.

The Ambassadors come from business, community or education backgrounds. They are selected for their interest in and an ability to help Suffolk New College, and have the knowledge and experience to contribute to the courses offered.

The key outcome is that through their relationship with the College, Ambassadors will provide students with a link to the world of work and help develop their social responsibility.
