Are you looking to boost your skills and employability?
Are you a volunteer (or interested in becoming one)?
Would you like academic credits for your volunteering achievements?
If so, you can benefit today from an exciting and flexible new Elective Module, launched throughout the University to help students enhance their experience and employability: Community Engagement Through Volunteering (CEtV).
“How can I benefit?”
Through this unique module, you will receive course credits and formal assessment for a relevant volunteering placement of your choosing. This may apply to projects in which you already participate, or even those which you want to start yourself. Whether you’ve completed a course of volunteering, or are interested in starting one this year, CEtV helps you to reflectively evaluate your experience and development as a volunteer, whilst gaining recognition for your efforts.
“What does it involve?”
As part of this module, you will complete at least 75 hours of volunteering with a charitable initiative of your choice; you’ll also complete a work plan and reflective portfolio outlining your activities and what you’ve learned during your volunteering.
“Will I be supported?”
Yes. The Student Volunteering Team alongside the Module Leader – Dr. Kristina Vasileva (K.Vasileva@westminster.ac.uk) will offer you regular 1-2-1 advice and guidance, access to a database of hundreds of suitable opportunities, volunteering fairs at your chosen campus and much more.
“What if I am still unsure?”
That is okay! Email us at email@example.com or call 020 3506 6112 for a chat.
