Recognising and rewarding the work of our volunteers, including our Course Reps is important to us. At present, there are three main ways that we do this:


Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)

To recognise the dedication and commitment to the role, we are part of the HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report) scheme, so when Course Reps finish university this experience will be added to their degree transcript. 

To be eligible for HEAR recognition Course Reps must have:

  • Registered to be a Course Rep through our online registration
  • Completed online training
  • Attended at least one Board of Study or JMSU workshop or Academic Interest Forum.

 For further information please visit the HEAR website.

You're Amazing!

On the last Wednesday of every month, we will recognise one Course Rep per faculty for the work they have done, as provided by the ‘tracking your activity’ function. Each winner will receive a shopping voucher, or cinema tickets as thanks for their work, and be celebrated via social media.

You're Amazing Awards Night

Every year JMSU hosts an annual awards, known as 'You're Amazing', where they can get dressed up, network with senior LJMU staff and meet other Student Reps, whilst being recognised for the work they have carried out throughout the year.
