Supporting our students to #GetInvolved and make a difference


How to log your hours:

Log in to your Students' Union Account (top of page) and then follow one of these links.

Elected: Log hours here if you have been elected for a role - Society of Club Committee, Course Rep, Part-Time Officer, Student Council.

SU Crew: Log hours here if you volunteer internally with the SU, such as Welcome Week Volunteer, Trustee, Festive Fortnight, Change Week, etc.

 

So, what is the V-Record?

The V-Record is a volunteering recognition system which allows us to reward students for the fantastic work that they do in the local community, with the SU, or at the University. Volunteering that you complete for the Worcester Award can also be recognised through the V-Record.

Why complete one?

Every time you hit an award, you can download your own volunteering certificate! On top of that, any student who achieves a 50 hour award or higher will have it recorded on Academic Degree Transcript Stand out from the crowd!

How do I start?

You can start logging hours on your online V-Record right now! It's easy to record all the volunteering hours you undertake each academic year. There's also 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 in June.

If you're not sure whether you can log your volunteering hours on the V-Record, have a look at the 'Are You Volunteering' page to find out.
