HEAR Requirements for Students' Union Committee Members

All undergraduate students have a HEAR. 

2017/18 Committee Members

Recently been elected to a 2017/18 committee? Congratulations!

Step 1

The first required task for HEAR verification is to let staff know that you have joined a committee by submitting a Committee Details Part B form here

You need to submit your Part B form by Friday 20th October 2017. If you think you may need an extension on this (eg if you are holding a late election), please email hear@shef.ac.uk. 

Step 2

Attend the full duration of one training session from the Society/Committee Training Programme - you can attend any session which interests you from the programmes in April/May 2017,  October/November 2017 or February/March 2018. If you are on two committees, then you will need to attend one training session for each committee. Even if you attended training in 2016/17 (or any previous year), you still need to attend a session in 2017/18. You must sign in when you arrive for the session. All details of the training on offer can be found here

Step 3.

When you are coming to the end of your role, you need to submit a Committee Member Completion Form by Friday 18th May 2018.. The Committee Member Completion Form will open in April 2018 and will be available on this page

Step 4. Stay in your role from the date of handover to you (from the 2016/17 committee member) until the agreed date of handover to the 2018/19 committee member, following your election during Society Election Fortnight (5th - 18th March 2018). Any committee members who resign before this time will not be eligible to have their role recorded in their HEAR.

If you complete these steps, then your committee position will be added to your HEAR by staff on 30th June 2018 (after you have completed your role). If you do not complete all of these steps, your position cannot be verified by staff, and cannot be added to your HEAR.
