BRINGING EUROPE INTO YOUR CLASSROOM

What is the AmbAssador Schools Programme?

“It was really empowering to show people the various ways that you can be involved in influencing political decisions, rather than a default onto protesting and political activism, showing that political discourse can be influenced through a nuanced debate on science policy as much as through a placard.”

— Charlotte Richer, Senior Ambassador,
The Cherwell School

“We had a lot of independence to research and I found out a lot. I feel like it’s really going to help me to understand the EU and the European Parliament.
Being part of the EPAS programme was really helpful to broaden my knowledge of how politics works in different countries and the EU; just a really fun scheme and I really, really enjoyed it.”

— Gabi, Junior Ambassador,
Channing School

“The big benefit of [the Ambassador Schools programme] was the way the students approached it. I could stand off and leave them to it. I think that’s the excellent part: they came up with some incredible ideas, when you give them the framework of the tasks they need to complete.”

— Reece Nelson, Senior Ambassador
USP College
