Last week I volunteered at Venturefest, an event that aims to drive the development of new business opportunities amongst innovators. It was a great event to allow people to share and discuss potential ideas. A few of the other volunteers consisted of second year undergraduates from University of Leicester, who were volunteering as part of the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
HEAR is a nationally recognised transcript that acknowledges both academic and extra-curricular achievements. It provides employers a chance to recognise where you have gained certain skills and experiences. The Higher Education Achievement Report can also help you when completing applications to distinguish your student experience and help you stand out from other applicants.
There is a range of activities that can be recognised, some even count towards your Leicester Award. For instance, being a Peer Mentor for your peers, Course Reps, Leicester Ambassador, Student Group Officer. To see the full list of activities that are recognised have a look on this Career Development Service page.
