About the role

T4 Country Ambassador Icon

Our Country Ambassador Programme will afford you the opportunity of continuous professional development along with several other benefits. In return, you are making a formal commitment to us to support our activities.

You will become an extension of our team for the duration and therefore your role will involve a minimum of 50hrs of volunteering throughout the year.

We've also made some exciting changes to the Country Ambassador role for 2023, providing more clearly- defined opportunities for you to use your superpowers and special skills to support our mission!

Country Ambassador activities

Some activities will depend upon your skills, experience and language capabilities of course, but you will be asked to request two of the following specialisms:

1. Community Moderator Squad - you will moderate our T4 Communities app content, ensuring member content is aligned with our Community Guidelines and support the community by welcoming them, engaging with their posts and answering any questions they may have. Training will be provided to support you with this.

2. Content Creator Squad - this role is for content creators that have an established platform focused on education with quality content produced on a regular basis. This platform may include an active YouTube channel, blog, TikTok or Instagram account. You should have a minimum of 2,000 followers and will be expected to publish content to promote our activities monthly. Your content will need to be published in either Arabic, English, French, Portuguese or Spanish. We will guide you on what to focus on each month although we expect you to have your own ideas too.

3. Prizes Screener Squad - you will need assessment experience and to be available late March - early April. You can continue your normal activities in this period, but you will need to commit to completing screening activities around those. You will be supported with training and guidance to ensure the process is rigorous and there are no conflicts of interest.

4. Social Media Squad - you will need to be active on at least three of the following platforms to participate in the Social Media Squad: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube. Social Media Squad activities include providing support to our community during major events such as the Teacher Tech Summit and similar, regular events launching in 2023. You will also assist with cohosting or supporting live events such as Twitter chats. We expect you will have some understanding of how to use social media effectively but you will also receive training and guidance to support you.

5. School Outreach Squad - you will need to prioritise contacting schools in your country to engage them with T4 initiatives throughout the year. You should already have means of reaching and engaging schools in your country, but we will also guide you on engagement activities to help you succeed. This will also include hosting (or cohosting with T4) webinars to promote our activities.

6. Teacher Outreach Squad - you will need to prioritise contacting teachers in your country to recruit them to join our community, including the T4 Communities app, register to attend our events and participate in our research, and prizes and challenges. You should already have means of contacting and engaging teachers in your country, but we will also guide you on engagement activities to help you succeed. Your role will also include hosting (or cohosting with T4) webinars to promote our activities.

7. Translation Squad - you will work closely with our team, helping us make our activities more inclusive by enabling us to reach teachers and schools that speak your language. You will need to be able to support one of the following languages in addition to English: Arabic, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Our Translation Squad work on a wide range of translation activities which sometimes involves getting early access to top-secret content and ensuring translations are accurate and ready for launch. There may also be opportunities to facilitate training and webinars on our behalf in one of our supported languages. You will receive all necessary training and guidance to succeed in your role.

Professional development

To support you with your role the team will ensure you have access to guidance, in-house training, promotional ‘mission’ packs and templates. Plus, we are always only a message or email away.

All our Country Ambassadors also benefit from being active online as they grow their own professional networks and collaborate on their own projects and activities too.

Apply to join a future cohort

Applications for the 2023 cohort of Country Ambassadors is now closed and we will open applications for the 2024 cohort in December 2023. In the meantime, if you are not already one of our awesome T4 Ambassador volunteers who amplify our communications online, you can join that programme without an application and can start on your ambassador activities immediately, building evidence to support a future Country Ambassador application.
