Completed the RED Award? Now you can progress onto the RED Award Plus! We recommend you complete this second stage as soon as you can so that you can then also complete the RED Award Xcel before you graduate from the university!
RED Award Plus
Once you have completed your RED Award you will receive an email giving information on how you can join the RED Award Plus.
This brand new second tier of the award is only open to students who have completed the initial award and will give you the chance to develop your skills further.
As part of the RED Award Plus you will undertake further training and development hours, plus complete new two new activities. There will be a range of activities to choose from such as undertaking an internship, volunteering opportunities or taking part in a university scheme but it must be new activity – it cannot be a continuation of what you did for the initial RED Award.
You will receive a RED Award Plus guide when you join this tier of the award and this will give you details of the activity you can undertake and what is required to complete each activity.
There will be an exclusive employer activity for students on the RED Award Plus and you will complete the award through submitting an online reflection looking back on your experience.
RED Award Xcel
The final tier of the award is the RED Award Xcel. This will be open to you once you have completed both the RED Award and RED Award Plus tiers.
At the Xcel stage of the award we will focus on making sure you are Graduate ready. You will be accredited for attending workshops supporting your transition from student to Graduate, and completing online courses that will prepare you for making applications after university.
