Sport Volunteers are one of the cornerstones of Bath’s success across sport and recreation not only across the university but also in our community. The Volunteer Recognition Scheme is designed to recognise this and identify areas for further development of these volunteers, not only aiding their sports clubs but also personal employability on graduation.

The scheme categorises volunteers into 5 levels (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Foundation) depending on their level of commitment to providing sporting opportunities for other students at the university and to the local community. Any student may apply whether they are a committee member, coach, official or any other role; in our student clubs, local community or national/international programs. You can apply by filling in the form here.

Process

Volunteers applying to the Volunteer Recognition Scheme will need to complete the form by the 9th April 2018. All applications will be reviewed by the Sports Officer, Volunteer Recognition Co-ordinator and the Recreational Sport Co-ordinator. There are no conditions where an applicant will automatically be granted a level of recognition.

If you are unsure of any parts of the following criteria or have a question when filling out the application please contact James Trott jt740@bath.ac.uk  or Rachel Noël r.a.noel@bath.ac.uk. The level of award will be based solely on your application.

Notes:

  • The number of people at each level will be limited so please ensure you present your work as accurately and fully as possible.
