Warwick Award: marking and assessment boycott.
Update 24 April 2023

You’re probably already aware that the UCU has included a marking and assessment boycott from Thursday 20 April - as part of the extension to its action short of a strike (ASOS). We want to let you know this proposed action will impact the Warwick Award, but we will continue to do all we can to minimise the disruption to you - in particular when it comes to confirming and adding core skills points to your award account.

Over the coming weeks, we will consult with both academic departments and the Student Records Office to ensure that any academic modules with core skills points attached are processed as soon as your department has made your results available via the SITS student information system.

Additionally, for those of you graduating this summer, we will seek to verify as many of your employability skills activities and reflections prior to your graduation date. However, please note; we can credit core skills points to your award account for up to three months after your graduation date, so there is some flexibility when it comes to finalising all of your core skills points and getting you over the line. Regardless of when you attain the Warwick Award, you will receive your digital certificate instantly, and the Award will also eventually appear on your HEAR.

Meanwhile, please continue to engage with the Warwick Award’s recognised skills development opportunities as usual – there are still plenty of opportunities to develop your skills and earn core skills points besides your academic modules. The full selection is available to browse on our platform, but some you might like to explore include standalone course in Critical Thinking, Communication, and Working in Groups, virtual work experience with The Forage, and not forgetting to ensure you’ve claimed any points you’ve earned through any part-time work, volunteering, or involvement with sports teams and SU societies.

We appreciate your patience whilst we work through the current circumstances and thank you for your continued support of the Warwick Award.

Join the Warwick Award and start building a host of valuable skills to help shape your future.

The Award is free for all undergraduate, taught postgraduate, exchange, and degree apprenticeship students, and will recognise and showcase the employability skills you’re building from everything you do here at Warwick.

Not only does the Award allow you to develop your own skills, it is also a great way to find out about hundreds of events and opportunities taking place across the University. You’ll be able to reconnect with campus, meet new people and make new connections, and improve your own employability.

From your academic modules, through to involvement with societies, sports teams, volunteering, internships, placements, or even part-time work, caring responsibilities and more – they can all help you progress towards earning the Warwick Award.
