Volunteering

Over the next two years all students in sixth form will be working towards a nationally recognised volunteering award as part of the V-Cops programme to build their skills, experience and confidence ahead of applications for their next steps, be that university, apprenticeships employment or something entirely different.

All students will work towards achieving either a V50 or a V100 (depending on how many hours they put in). There are at least 46 activities in school which have been matched to particular career pathways that the students have identified with the help of their tutors. This really is a brilliant way for students to ensure they have that bit of something extra to help them stand out from the crowd, as well as strengthening the Beckfoot community as a whole.

Students are expected to be an ambassador for our school both in our school community and outside in our local community. They can login and record their hours, and browse the volunteering opportunities by visiting https://vinspired.com/schools/bf-school

The booklet below shows the volunteering opportunities available to students at the start of the programme.  Students have also found their own ways to contribute.
