Disability Service Student Ambassador Programme
What is the DS Student Ambassador Programme?
The Disability Service Student Ambassador Programme is a group of students with disabilities that represent and showcase Trinity College Dublin Disability Service to prospective students. In doing this, the Ambassadors share their stories and experiences of college life giving them a real picture of what Trinity has to offer. The Ambassadors act as positive role models and information providers at presentations in the community and at Orientation programmes in Trinity.
Why should I get involved?
If you get involved, you will have an opportunity to improve your communication, presentation, public speaking, networking and leadership skills. Furthermore you can develop your knowledge and experiences, which will be beneficial for your personal growth and journey through university and into employment, as these are all attractive attributes to a future employer.
You will have access to a monthly Ambassador Training and Leadership Programme, which will be hosted by internal and external professionals in topics such as ‘Effective Presentation’; ‘Using Microsoft Office’; and ‘Project Management’. You will also have an opportunity to contribute to the future life and career choices of the next generation of Trinity students!
What is involved?
If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, you are required to attend an initial two day training workshop which will give you important information to support you in your role as an Ambassador. Furthermore, you will be asked to sign up to various events that the Disability Service run, where you may be asked to share your student voice, informing people about your experience as a Trinity student, your route to education and your college life. You can pick and choose what events suit your schedule!
Do I need any particular qualifications or experience?
No - all you need is a positive attitude, motivation and enthusiasm!
