Schools have welcomed the success of the programme and the critical role played by Business Champions who mentor ambassadors and report seeing the students develop in maturity and confidence. Feedback from parents and carers shows that they felt the programme had a positive effect on future aspirations, helping students to decide what career path to take, and giving a greater insight into what was required to succeed at school and in the world of work. The feedback from all stakeholders shows that the programme has created ‘better learners and better workers’.
