Volunteer opportunities

Volunteer opportunities

Being a volunteer exposes you to new opportunities to develop skills outside the remit of your day job. It enhances your professional profile by opening up new networks and actively involves you in professionalising the HE sector.

Roles at the AUA

PgCert Mentors

As a mentor on our PgCert programme you will provide one to one support and encouragement to a PgCert student, acting as a critical friend for the duration of their study. By sharing your professional experience you’ll make a real contribution to someone’s career development, while developing new skills and knowledge yourself.

Network Coordinators and Advocates

The AUA is a professional community that thrives at a national, regional and local level because of the commitment and enthusiasm of our Network Coordinators and Advocates.  Our Network Coordinators and Advocates represent us at their institutions and organisations; raising awareness of the AUA, recruiting new members, motivating current members to actively participate in our activities and their professional development and communicating local ideas to the AUA team to keep us in touch with you and your needs.
