Our pilot year of European Parliament Ambassador Schools (EPAS) in the UK is now well underway and we are delighted to have our first cohort of schools and colleges working towards accreditation:

EPAS is very flexible in how it can be approached and reach of these institutions has started their journey to accreditation in a different way.

Charlotte Richer, the Senior Ambassador at The Cherwell School, has put together this thorough planning document which she has generously shared with all the other EPAS participants:

La Retraite and Channing School have been publicising their involvement in EPAS by putting up pages on their websites:



Letting your wider school community know that your are a European Parliament Ambassador School – and what that means – is essential to the programme. So when you have your page set up (and start publicising it on social media) log in to your dashboard and add a link as part of your accreditation evidence.

… and tweeting about it too:

USP College have had educational sessions on the history and processes of the EU and European Parliament, culminating in some debates about the future of the EU; these have been run online by Involver.

All of our other pilot schools and colleges are booking in our trainers to run kick-off sessions with their Junior Ambassadors (students). These will provide information, promote debates and help Junior Ambassadors develop plans for the events and activities they will run.
