Your Volunteer Officers (School Reps, College Officers, PG Officers, Campaigns Network Officers, Sports and Societies Officers) write brief reports each month about what they have been up to and what they are planning to do in the coming month.
You can view the volunteer Officer Reports for November here.
The Executive Committee scrutinise all Volunteer Officer reports each month, to ensure that all Officers are held to account on the work they do for students. Each month the Officers will choose five nominees for the Volunteer Officer of the Month award, and will select one winner!

The winner of October’s Volunteer Officer of the Month was Luke Kidger, School Rep for Film and Media! Luke won was selected because he highlighted work in his report that was wider than the academic remit of the Volunteer Officer, referring and advocating for the Advice Centre when students within his school were coming to him for support/advice. He’s also shown that he’s been proactive in his role finding out from the bottom up the issues that are currently facing a minority student population in his school.
