Newcastle College Life Skills Learner, James Mountford has successfully completed his training to become a Duke of Edinburgh Ambassador for Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG).
This exciting opportunity will now enable James to take a leading role in promoting, guiding and mentoring fellow Duke of Edinburgh participants at College. James will now work alongside the College's Duke of Edinburgh Manager, Rob Sigley to support students to achieve their awards, help run presentation evenings and promotional events and advice students on which activities to choose as part of their award.
James is also currently working towards his Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and combined with the ambassador training, he has learnt invaluable skills in mentoring, presentation, planning and leadership skills, and how to maximise resources available to the College.
Well done James, you will be brilliant as our Ambassador!
