Opportunity to increase recognition of students sporting achievements15/03/2012
NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR SPORTS CONTRIBUTION TO STUDENT EMPLOYABILITY
BUCS is recruiting representatives from across the sector to contribute to a task and finish group that will make recommendations for the recognition of sporting achievement (in its broadest sense) within the new Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) for students.
The HEAR is an online record of a student’s achievements at University, that aims to provide potential employers with a more detailed profile of a graduates skills and abilities, recognising both academic and non-academic achievements. The HEAR is an outcome of a report written by Professor Bob Burgess (Vice Chancellor at The University of Leicester) and has been developed by the Burgess Implementation Steering Group (BISG), currently being piloted at over 80 UK Universities.
This task and finish group has the opportunity to work with the Centre for Recording Achievement to make recommendations to the Steering Group for the recognition of sport within the HEAR, raising the profile of sport and its contribution to student employability nationally.
We are looking to recruit a small task and finish group of 8 – 12 members from a wide cross section of institutions and roles to attend three meetings between now and the end of June to develop these recommendations. Professor John Brewer from Bedfordshire University and BUCS Board Member has agreed to chair this group with support from BUCS Head of Sport Development Jon Brookstein, the Centre for Recording Achievement and the BISG.
In order to register your interest in being involved, or for further information please email Jon Brookstein on or before Wednesday 28th March 2012.
