The Roehampton Award underlines the importance of transferable skills developed through a wide range of activities on campus and in the local and wider community and encourages students to build on their achievements as they enter the labour market. The Roehampton Award is supported by a number of employers who value volunteering, service, leadership and extracurricular opportunities for personal and professional development within student life.

Life Routes - This year’s Roehampton Award celebrates the achievements of students who participated in the Life Routes programme. These students have inspired others by working with local youth organisations and partners on volunteering projects. Initiated by the National Children’s Bureau, the Life Routes programme provided the opportunity for University of Roehampton students to gain leadership and employability skills through the development and implementation of a volunteering project to young people.

If you feel that any student should be recognised for your outstanding contributions to student life or you know someone that inspires you, recognise their achievements by nominating them for a Roehampton Award. Individual students or groups are eligible for the Roehampton Award. Making a nomination is easy, simply download a Nomination Form and email it to employability@roehampton.ac.uk

The deadline for nominations is Friday, 9th May 2014.
