Do you volunteer?

If you are currently, or have done any, volunteering since July 2016 you could get your hard work recognised by the HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report), which will help you stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs! The deadline to log your hours for this year is 30th June 2017.


If you are not sure whether your volunteering hours should be logged onto the V-Record, have a look at the "Are you Volunteering" page.


How do I log my hours?

V-Records is a system set up specifically for courageous and generous students that volunteer, just like you. By using the V-Records you can log your hours online right now. It is easy to record all the volunteering hours you undertake each academic year. There's an optional section that allows you to reflect on what skills you're learning along the way.

All you need to do is fill in the online record and your hours are stored safely on our system - make sure you leave your volunteering supervisor contact details so that we can verify your hours for the HEAR.


What certificates are available?

The Students' Union offers recognition certificates at five stages for any student completing the V-Record

  20 hour award Recognition of Volunteering
50 hour award Achievement in Volunteering
100 hour award Distinction in Volunteering
200 hour award Excellence in Volunteering
