This year Sheffield Hallam Student’s Union has been working hard to encourage its societies to become more enterprising. Using the RBS Enterprising Student Society Accreditation as a benchmark, 10 Hallam Union societies have become accredited by the scheme since October 2012 and we have encouraged and supported them to achieve the accreditation via building their membership, increasing their enterprising abilities and raising their regional profile.
Find Invest Grow and the Royal Bank of Scotland Group think that enterprising student societies should be recognised for their efforts. As such, the RBS ESSA is a national scheme which proactively rewards and recognises student societies and the teams of students behind them. The RBS ESSA certification is the official stamp of achievement.
With the launch of the RBS Enterprising Students Ranking table, Sheffield Hallam University has been ranked fifth in the country. A university amasses ranking points based on the number of societies receiving RBS ESSA accreditation, as well as entries to the Bronze, Silver and Gold categories of the RBS ESSA Awards. Circus Hallam, our circus skills society are currently working on their entry for a Gold award and we look forward to hearing the result later this year.
