Geography Ambassador Scheme - Getting involved
We recognise that your time is more limited due to work commitment, and the majority of Graduate Ambassadors tend to give their time at specific events throughout the Scheme's calendar. Below are some examples and dates for events at the Society can be found here
In addition to the above events some Graduate Ambassadors are able to do visits in schools having been given leave from their employer. Most go back to their old schools, nearby schools or schools linked to their employer (if appropriate).
For all activity as part of the scheme we can reimburse your travel, just fill in this Expenses Claim Form and email it to us at the email address at the bottom of this page.
