Log your volunteering hours by Tuesday 18 May

The Kent Volunteering Scheme (KVS) is designed to recognise and support your volunteering achievements. There are various levels of awards, depending on how many volunteering hours you record.

By logging hours on the Kent Volunteering Scheme webpage, students can accumulate hours and progress through the scheme to receive guidance and support from the Careers and Employability Service.

When achieving certain levels of volunteering hours, students will receive support from staff; outlining how their volunteering experience has enhanced their employability skills, developed their Graduate Attributes and how to use this to your advantage when talking to employers.

For more information and to log your volunteering hours, please visit the Kent Volunteering Scheme webpage. The deadline to submit your volunteering hours is midnight on Tuesday 18 May.
