Hardworking students who volunteer and work alongside their studies have been recognised at a University of Wolverhampton awards ceremony.
The annual event celebrates the achievements of volunteers and those who have completed european placements.
Over 115 people attended the Employment and Volunteering Awards on 10 May 202 to celebrate students and graduates who have achieved success in an aspect of employment and / or volunteering whilst continuing academic study.
This year’s winner of the Volunteer of the Year Award was Natalie Vaughan who volunteered with Trail-Blazers. Her role involved mentoring young offenders and assisting with new mentor training. Simon Brandwood, Head of Careers and Employment Services, said: “Volunteering and gaining work experience, whether it is paid or unpaid, is an excellent way of developing skills and qualities that can’t fail to impress any future graduate employer.”
