Wellbeing Champions

Wellbeing Champions is a three tier programme for students who want to learn how to enhance wellbeing for themselves, their friends, and in the community. We are currently hiring for new Wellbeing Champion student ambassadors, who will use their skills, knowledge, and experience to support fellow students.

Over the past year, Wellbeing Champions have supported students from across the university to have honest conversations about mental health, while also having fun and meeting new people. Just last week, they played a key role in Mental Health Awareness week, running our popular Walk My Dog sessions, and earlier in the year they hosted the UOK? wellbeing workshops, on how to manage the stresses of university life.

If you want to play a key role in supporting student wellbeing, please check out the full job description – applications close on Sunday 5 June.

Inclusive Practice Partnerships Scheme

The Inclusive Practice Partnerships Scheme empowers our student and staff Inclusive Practice Partners to work together to create a more inclusive curriculum. To do this, IPPs review the teaching content, materials, and practices of selected modules on their course, and make suggestions for decolonising and diversifying the curriculum.

As part of the scheme, IPPs also get access to additional development workshops. These provide IPPs with additional wellbeing support and assist with the development of their employability skills, so that they can carry the principles of this work with them into their future careers.

You can find out more about the IPP role by reading these blogs, written by a selection of current IPPs, or come along to one of our drop in sessions, to meet them in person and get guidance on the application and interview process:
