Your Voice

Run by students, for students – what difference will you make?

The Course Rep Accreditation Scheme

You can receive accreditation from the Students' Union for being a Course Rep subject to you carrying out tasks throughout the year. This does not mean that you have to do a lot of extra work, rather that you will need to carry out your responsibilities effectively helping to ensure that you get the best out of your course for you and your peers.

The deadline to apply for Accreditation is 8th May 2022 at 5PM.
The award recognises the hard work that you do all year in the Course Rep role. Part of the accreditation involves a reflective exercise that will help you look back to identify the skills you have gained and the achievements you have made as a Course Rep. All of the events on the Course Rep calendar will help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to the role and therefore we highly recommend you engage with as much as possible.

You can find full guidance in our factsheet here.

You can log the required volunteering hours here.

You can fill in your Accreditation Application Form here. Please ensure you have completed all the required tasks and logged your volunteering hours before completing this form. If you have any questions about the accreditation please email Jack our Student Voice Assistant at j.appleby@worc.ac.uk.
