Ambassador Scheme

Image of training participants

The NCCPE Public Engagement Ambassador Scheme aimed to improve the quality of higher education public engagement practice, by supporting individuals who coordinate relevant networks across the UK. Ambassadors were part of a national network, sharing knowledge and experience with their peers and participating in events including training, networking and ideas exchange.

The Ambassador Scheme pilot finished in August 2017. The NCCPE are now reviewing the learning from the pilot and feeding this into a consultation on our training and support activities. The consultation will provide a number of opportunities for people to get involved, from an online survey to telephone interviews and face-to-face focus groups on particular issues. If you would like to take part, please get in touch with Heather Lusardi via
