What does an apprenticeship ambassador do?
They undertake their ambassador role on a voluntary basis by supporting and influencing a range of key stakeholders. These stakeholders include schools, colleges, local enterprise partnerships, employers and their supply chains, trade associations and employment bodies. They champion and support marketing, publicity and events to raise awareness of apprenticeships and mentor other ambassadors.
How to join the AAN
Sign in to your 'My Apprenticeship' account and navigate to the Apprenticeship Ambassador Network tile on the dashboard. From there you will be able to join the AAN network. The onboarding process will take about 20 to 30 minutes and we will ask you to include a short explanation of why you want to join the network.
Don’t have a 'My Apprenticeship' account?
If you are an apprentice and don’t have an Apprenticeship Service (AS) account, you will need to complete setting up your 'My Apprenticeship’ account before you can benefit from the AAN portal. You can contact support at any time with the details below.
If you don’t have an AS account and you started your apprenticeship before 2019, you will need to contact the Apprenticeship Service helpdesk to be set up on the system. Please contact the helpdesk on 08000 150 600 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- first name
- last name
- date of birth
- your apprenticeship start date - this can be an estimate if you’re not sure
- unique learner number (ULN) - this is helpful if you know it but it’s not essential
If you cannot access your account, or have any questions or need any support, please contact the helpdesk on 08000 150 600 or by emailing email@example.com.
