Opportunities on the AGCAS Board of Directors

AGCAS is now recruiting motivated and enthusiastic members to join the Board of Directors from 1 August 2010. These are challenging times and you can make a real difference. It is vital that we continue to have a full and capable team to lead our association.

Coaching, motivation and employability in action

One of the key challenges in developing employability is encouraging students to see how skills gained in one context can transfer to another. Dr Tracy Johnson, Careers Adviser at the University of Bristol Careers Service, has been working with the Community Sports Leaders programme to help students engaged in community sports coaching identify the employability skills gained through their volunteering activities.

Give a little, gain a lot! The University of Winchester’s accredited volunteering module

During the 2011-12 academic year, The University of Winchester offered an exciting new module to undergraduate students, giving them the opportunity to complete a voluntary placement within the charitable sector for academic credit. The main aims of the module are to provide students with the opportunity to acquire and develop a new range of skills whilst making a positive contribution to the local community, and at the same time learn about the voluntary sector as an employment prospect. The volunteering module provides a 'work placement' experience for those students studying programmes which do not have a vocational focus.

Volunteers needed for AGCAS committees and working parties
AGCAS could not function as a professional body without the time and support of our members. To take forward our strategy we are advertising for a number of volunteers to join our committees and working parties.
