Ambassadors

An NTA Ambassador is someone who believes in the importance of excellence in training and the positive impact that this can have on organisations and individuals; somebody who helps promote these benefits through the platform of The National Training Awards, which celebrate outstanding business success - one of the most effective forms of benchmarking excellence in training in the UK.

How do Ambassadors support the National Training Awards?

In 2010 our Ambassador network helped NTA gain exposure at over 135 events up and down the country which helped spread our key messages to over 3500 people. In addition they helped to distribute over 25,000 materials to their own networks. Our Ambassador network also provided venues for us to host over 60 Information Seminars, which provided guidance to over 1200 individuals and organisations, which in turn helped to generate over 790 entries.
