Key Words

Personalised learning, extra curricula, enterprise, personal development, employability, recognition, ambassador, skills development, active engagement.



The Salford Student Life Award was launched in November 2009 with 95 students.   In order to accommodate the variety of full academic studies programme requirements there are three entry points each year in November, January and March.  The target number for each cohort is 200.



The Salford Student Life Award is an achievement award designed to enhance curricula and extra-curricula activities related to employability, enterprise and personal development.  The Salford Student Life Award is flexible, allowing students involved in existing PDP, enterprise and employability programmes as well as volunteering, mentoring, student ambassador involvement and workplace activities to be recognised and validated by the Student Life Directorate.


What it involves


The Award is open to all students but must be completed within one calendar year of the start date.  Students may take the Fast Track Award within a shorter time frame if they so choose. 


The Award consists of three prescriptive elements:


All students must attend a session and complete associated tasks

P1: Award Induction and Planning

P2: CV/Job search or Business Start up

P3: Active Engagement Presentations


  In addition over the duration of the Award programme students must complete the

following Supporting and Active Engagement activities. 


The Bronze, Silver and Gold levels are dependent on the completion of Supporting Activities and Active Engagement elements.
