What is the YAAN?
The Young Apprentice Ambassador Network (YAAN) is a community of inspiring, driven apprentices and former apprentices who have chosen to register as Young Apprentice Ambassadors in their local area.
The YAAN gives today’s apprentices the opportunity to connect with and motivate the apprentices of tomorrow.
You will participate in a 1-day public speaking training course which is fully funded by the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). You will then be able to search the events listing and select the activities that you are able to support.
Each YAAN member is linked to one of nine regional networks so as well as being part of the national network, you will also be part of your regional network.
Each regional network has a Chair and they will also have sub-regional areas which are even more local to you.
As a YAAN member, you will be invited to be part of lots of exciting campaigns and projects. Some of our members have found themselves presenting at awards ceremonies, speaking at the House of Commons, have been the face of national TV apprenticeship campaigns, have featured in the Times Education Supplement, and been invited to other high profile events.
