Open Event Roles and Responsibilities
There are a number of roles during the open events. Please read through your role description here, and contact Izzie Gazzard if you have any questions.
Roaming Hosts will support the events by helping visitors find any relevant classrooms or areas that they would like to see. Many will be displaying student work, running demonstrations, etc. They'll be easily identifiable as they'll be wearing purple 'Here to help' sashes - please pick these up after the Staff Briefing.
Some Roaming Hosts will be stationed in specific spots for parts of the evening.
Please see Izzie Gazzard after each Staff Briefing so that she can confirm where you'll be based.
A full list of the open classrooms will be available on the night so that you can familiarise yourself with them.
Visitors are free to explore the campus, but can find a campus map or ask any Roaming Hosts if they'd like help finding their way around.
