Course Rep Awards

We know how hard all our Course Reps work, and we think it is important that their achievements are celebrated throughout the year, both by us here at the Union and across the University.

Rep of the Month

Every month the Voice Zone vote on who will be recognised as Course Rep of the Month based on the feedback we get through the Course Rep Wins Form. The winning Rep will be awarded a £20 Amazon voucher to recognise their hard work and their achievements will be recognised on the Students' Union website, and on social media. The winners of Rep of the Month will also be included in our Rep updates.

HEAR

The Higher Education Achievement Record is a national scheme which means that students receive a record of their extra-curricular activities upon graduating. Being a Course Rep is a fantastic achievement and great experience, so we ensure that students who meet the criteria below have their time as a Rep recorded on their HEAR.

In order to have your commitment as a Rep included on your HEAR, you just need to fulfil these simple criteria:

    1. Be elected by a majority of your peers.
    2. Attend Course Rep training or online training.
    3. Attend 3 Student Voice Forums and 2 Faculty Voice Forums.
    4. Be an active member on Unitu and escalate the majority of feedback within the expected response time

Reps of the Year Awards

This year, the VP Voice and Voice Zone (in consultation with the relevant University staff) will be selecting our Course Reps of the Year in the following categories:

  • Undergraduate Faculty Reps of the Year (1 in each Faculty)
  • Placement Rep of the Year
  • Postgraduate Taught Rep of the Year
  • Postgraduate Researcher Rep of the Year

There is also an overall Course Rep of the Year chosen by the wider Union and awarded at the Students' Union Student Awards.

Self-nominated Rep Awards

Each year, we run our self-nominated Course Rep Awards to recognise exceptional Reps. This is our way to give Reps recognition for all the hard work they put in over the course of the year. All Reps will be invited to apply for either bronze, silver or gold status. You'll get more information about how you can do this later in the year, but bear in mind it's helpful to keep records of SSLCs and other activities if you want to apply for an award.
