Coleg Cambria Students Celebrate Becoming Wrexham Tourism Ambassadors!

Since its launch last Autumn, the online Wrexham Tourism Ambassador Scheme has now amassed over 200 individuals from around Wrexham and even as far as the US as official ambassadors!

Students at Coleg Cambria studying tourism & hospitality have also incorporated the online modules as part of their learning programmes and since Christmas, over 30 students and tutors have now become official ambassadors.

Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Andy Williams presents students from Coleg Cambria with their certificates at Trevor Basin alongside Wrexham Tourism Manager, Joe Bickerton.

The Wrexham Tourism Ambassador scheme is hosted online and designed to primarily support those working in the local hospitality industry gain a better knowledge of the area in which they operate, so that they can pass this on to visitors they engage with. In turn, the free course is also open to any members of the public with an interest in Wrexham and has attracted worldwide interest!

Just before Easter, the successful students were presented with their certificates by Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Andy Williams at the Trevor Basin next to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Angharad Jarvis represents Coleg Cambria on the Wrexham Tourism Partnership and supported the launch of the ambassador scheme last year. She said; “It’s been a fantastic scheme to date and although I’ve lived and worked in Wrexham all my life, I’ve learnt a lot of information about the wider area that we’ve been able to pass onto our learners. In turn, many learners have embraced the modules and the knowledge they’ve gained has started to help shape their wider knowledge of Wrexham which will help them in their careers after college”.

To date, to become an ambassador – participants need to undertake three initial ‘bronze’ modules, with optional ‘silver’ and ‘gold’ modules now being live. As well as receiving a digital certificate,

Gold ambassadors will be invited to an annual Mayoral presentation to celebrate their achievements.

Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Andy Williams added; “It was a real joy meeting the students and learning about the work and commitment that they’d put into become a tourism ambassador. Ultimately, if we’re to keep moving forward as a competitive tourism destination, it’s the passion and skills of these learners that will be the future of our hospitality industry – so I offer them our congratulations on this achievement!”

Businesses are also reminded that they can become ‘official Wrexham Ambassador Businesses’ by helping more than 50% of their workforce achieve a bronze certificate.
