Rewards & Recognition

Everyone volunteers for different reasons – for some people it’s simple altruism, whereas others volunteer as a way to develop Employability skills which help to make them more employable.

Whether you’ve volunteered for the Students’ Union (perhaps in a sports club or society, or even as a rep or SU Activator), or you’ve volunteered in the community, we want to make sure that you’re recognised for the hours you’ve put in.


Logging Your Hours

Any volunteering you do through your Students’ Union will automatically be recorded on your Skills Log, within which is a document for you to download with a history of all your extracurricular activity. Don’t forget to also log any external experiences!

For every example logged where you have demonstrated the Employability Skills you will earn a star in that skill.

Keep an eye on your star ratings and see if you can reach Bronze, Silver or Gold level!
