Volunteering and your employability
Volunteering is a great way to develop skills, networks and interests ready for your professional life after graduation. You can track the skills you develop through your volunteering activities on your volunteer profile, this is a useful way to create a log ready for those applications that will come along later down the line.
Also, anyone who achieves a Gold volunteering hours award will have this added to their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) for future employers to see.
