STUDENT HELPERS REQUIRED - FRIDAY 22 JANUARY 2016

On Friday 22 January 2016 the AA is holding an Open Day for prospective students. The day is an opportunity for prospective students and parents to meet current students and staff, take tours of the buildings, get advice on their applications etc. 

Prospective students love to hear from current students; so we would like to encourage current registered students, from Foundation through to PhD, to get involved and help out.

As the event is running all day, from 10am until 8pm, the Admissions Team are seeking keen student helpers to undertake key jobs such as:

  • Providing a warm welcome at the front door
  • Registration of attendees
  • Handing out bags and providing directions
  • Leading tours of the school
  • Other ad-hoc jobs

If you are interested, please email Kirstie Little (Kirstie.little@aaschool.ac.uk) a short message confirming:

  1. Your name
  2. Membership number
  3. Current year / programme
  4. Your availability on day i.e. all day, AM only, PM only
  5. Jobs you are keen to help with

This is a great opportunity to get involved and possibly secure a student assistantship with the admissions team for Term 2 and Term 3.

After the Christmas break, I will be in touch with further details and the final schedule.

Thank you
